"... a demanding creation which combines the subtle and touching imagery of the dance into a surreal work of art.

... the piece's subtext challenges the viewer to re-think his definition of dance and art."

Antje Bissinger, Applaus Magazine


"Melo presents something never seen before."

"It's not Swan Lake - and it doesn't have to be if it is this new and brilliantly done."

Beate Kayser, Tageszeitung and Münchner Merkur

"Choreographer Melo and designer Kinmonth have worked together ingeniously: turning dance into animated photography."

"...the true statement of the piece lies in the mysterious surreal imagery."

Malve Gradinger, Bayerischer Rundfunk

"... a magnificent Pas de Deux, right on the threshold of control and fear."

Simone Hirmer, Süddeutsche Zeitung
