reviews

"Top class!"

"A show that completely shines with warmth and absurd, surreal humor. Also thanks to Patrick Kinmonths exquisite set design and costumes, and Mårten Bergkvist's playful sound design"

"A crazy and wonderful kiss that is relayed between the ten dancers. A dance scene that should be a classic!"

Martin Nyström, Dagens Nyheter

"Fernando Melo is hungry as a wolf. The Guest House really bursts with creativity, not least thanks to set and costume designer Patrick Kinmonth."

"Why hasn't anyone thought of it before?!"

"He has developed something original."

"How beautiful and ever so smart! Why hasn't anyone come up with this before, either? Yes, you heard it - Fernando Melo is the choreographer of the future."

Liv Landell, Göteborgs Tidningen
