FROM THE PRESS:
"Lidberg makes good use of the talents of his ten dancers and the varied dynamics hold the pace, making the work seem all too short"
Maggie Foyer, Dance Europe, November 2013
"Pontus Lidberg develops a complex unity of dance, music and projection from the rich poetry of Persian mystic Rumi"
Tanz, November 1, 2013
"The tenderness of the music and the gentleness of the movements spread something like a protective sheath above the excellent "dream-dancers", so that even expressive movements of struggle resolve themselves in poetic melancholy"
