Theatre is a bubble. [...]
The spectator sinks into a world of sound and alienates from the present, [...]. (Oliviero Ponte di Pino – ATEATRO Webzine di cultura teatrale)
It is an impressive piece which, having an elaborate stage set and an amazing rhythm, not at last generated by the intensity of the two performers, does not let go. [...] Snow White undergoes together with the audience the metamorphosis of the rescued Beautiful to the Savior of her own happiness.
(Susanne Trenkwalder, Zuschauerrezension)
"Dwarf" and "Snow White" ask their questions [...] - and allow the audience to ponder over questions and possible answers themselves, while watching the dances and listening to mainly electronic music.
(Heinz Wagner, KIKU)
