an encounter Press Reviews


"A dynamic and physical performance on an passionate and moving story"
Sibiu Fest. Ziarul Metropolis. Romania.

A dance duet that is acrobatic, challenging, humorous, recognizable (although it is better not to try it yourself) and above all fascinating from start to finish!”
Gerhard Verfaille. Director Krokus Festival. CC Hasselt. Belgium

This show has got second place at PIC Poetic Invasion Festivals contest 2019.
