“This is a show of elegant, wistful beauty, in which the spatial becomes something you can almost reach out and touch. At times it feels like a game of chess. Like much of Gandini’s work, it has a cool gaze but never a cold heart, while it obsessively and wittily looks for the meaning of life in the mathematical patterns of bodies and sound.”
The Guardian

As the eight performers weave intricate physical patterns via their respective skills, it is hard to tell where juggling ends and dancing begins. ... The piece is clearly intended to challenge our perceptions of the art forms on display. ... This is a clever, cool and wondrous show that gives delight and hurts not.
