"It is Lidberg’s choreography which is utterly mesmerising. It shies away from virtuoso or muscular exhibitionism, there is no energy on display here. On the contrary, liquid, soft, light movements, which resort to the myriad possibilities of contemporary dance but never aim to overpower the imposing score, here in a historic recording by Karl Richter. Their movements become more commanding, conquering us little by little, with an enveloping spiral of lightness and spirituality, taking the audience by the hand and
leading it into the sublime music of Bach."
Sergio Trombetta, Danza&Danza nr. 274 Maggio/Giugno 2017

"Si l’œuvre originelle s’achève sur le repos du Christ mort, rien ne présageant la résurrection, la création de Pontus Lidberg, elle, pose l’humain nu face à la muraille enténébrée. Lui, vent debout, résiste comme il respire."
Bertrand Tappolet, Le Courrier 4 April, 2017
