“The mix of physical meltdown and verbal explosion with Schubert’s romantic aesthetic seems just as surprising as it makes sense, when the subject is different ways we kill one another and each other dreams”, “An outstanding display of mental breakdown”. Majbrit Hjelmsbo, Weekendavisen

“Maria Kochetkova is so intense that it hurts”. Henriette Devantier, Sceneblog

“Once again, Maria Kochetkova and Sebastian Kloborg deliver an outstanding performance.”
“A baroque and humorous take on the theme of love, life and death, here as a war between lovers on a Persian carpet.” Monna Dithmer, Politiken.

“A dreamlike dance of stilettos and intimacy”. Anne Middelboe, Information.

“a tragicomic and grotesque theater duo”. Vibeke Wern, Danstidningen.
