"The piece arrives at a strange crossroads between language and movement. Parts of speech – verbs, the active and passive voice, the subject and the object – intersect with another kind of enunciation: the subject as body; action and animus; motion as material, sensation and volition. It’s a fascinating journey – articulated, layered, highly punctuated..." Sanjoy Roy, Review, Certamen Coreográfico Madrid
