"Sigrid Strøm Reibo manages, together with the actors and the rest og the artistic team, to bring to life this beautiful and painful lovestory. (...) The visual proposals that work the very best are the theatrical tableaus. In various key moments or endings of scenes the actors gathers in tableaus, much helped by Agnethe Tellefsen good lighting design, resembling renaissance paintings. It is elegant and very beautifully executed and it works as a channel into the historical aspect. The play with this material is respectful and living."

"Much helped by the scenography, lighting design and soundscape does the seriousness dawn on the story. The ensemble plays out a lovestory which tightens hard and beautifully, it stands out as a violent tradegy told through an open approach and beautiful images"

"Much have been said about this work, both the dance and music original ideas, a singing dancer, choreographed by Sara Calero and musical direction by Gema Caballero. The dancer, with long experience from the Andalusian Ballet and the National Spanish Ballet, creator of various unique performances, now faces feminine images inspired by Goya's paintings, giving them a sensation of mystery enhanced by the dark lights and beautiful contrast in the lighting design created by Agnethe Tellefsen."

"The remarkably bare stage was a great way to frame the Andalusian dancers and their incredibly gifted musicians."...

"Another really beautiful moment was when the singer, José Anillo, sang a verse which included a sentence that said “I am a furniture of sadness wrapped in...”; what a way to frame the empty chair lit in the pool of light.

Trasmín was a refreshing show with a simplicity that allowed the exploration of form through genuine and original choreography. The bareness of the stage did not reflect a lack of something but rather amplified the spirit and energy. Very few people can fill a theatre like Sadler's Wells without staging tricks or using props; Liñán and Maya exemplified beauty as they moved in an elated fashion across the bare stage."

Two centuries of influences for the school of Spanish Dance

By Javier Prieto

www.lavozdigital.es/jerez

 

“Lights and costumes were perfectly synchronized with the different period settings, and with little more than a table, a clothes rack and some stools the dramatic setting was conveyed.”

Lidón Patiño, last show at the XI Larachi Flamenca in Seville

(FESTIVAL LARACHI FLAMENCA SEVILLE 2011)

By Manuel Sualis

"A special mention to the lighting technician Agnethe Tellefsen, who during the 4 days of the festival worked relentlessly, mastering the lights – deep pink and orange of the sunset, blue as the night – resembling the nights of the Alameda.”

"During the solo dance of the Soleá the lights fade down (well conducted by Agnethe Tellefsen) and becomes an intimate white ambience…”

"Special mention to J.J. Amador and Guadalupe during the tango, also to the lighting technician who made a good colour choice with rich pink and violet to accompany the wine coloured elegant dress of Guadalupe.”

FETEN presents many good productions

"MenchosA Teatro and Elfo Teatro join forces with La Isla de los Pájaros in which the perfect staging and the music, which by its own almost creates parallel scenic dialogue, are the most striking.”

A vision of our chaotic world with a humoristic twist

"La isla de los Pájaros (...) a production in which the laborious work of the puppet manipulation, the set design and the audiovisuals meet the eye”

“Beautiful performance about fear from this veteran company which combines actors-puppets-objects and live music. (...) The exquisite set design and props, puppets and objects are inspired by the world of Mandana Sadat.”

Terele Páves y Carles Castillo made Rivas laugh

By Fernando Galán

for Rivas Hoy, 15/11/2010

 

"... while a complicated and carefully designed set, these which you now a days seldom see in the theaters, help to situate the characters in their contemptible environment.”

" You will see a good performance and a wonderful set design”

Review of ¡¡¡Mamáááá!!! At the Zorilla Theatre

By Christian Supiot

"The costume and set design managed to make the audience feel the ambience of a Catalan bourgeois house, in which the characters of the play no longer fit with the decoration (...) nor do their desires fit with the environment that they have not chosen to live in.”

Dance do not judge chromosomes

(PSICO BALLET MAITE LEÓN AT THE INT. FESTIVAL IN GRANADA 2004)

By Andrés Molinari

for Ideal, Granada, 13/07/2004

 

"Many minutes of applause and standing audience, the enthusiasm noticeable on the skin, describe better than any review the performance of Psico Ballet Maite León in Granada. Someone who thought to have seen it all in Contemporary Dance must confess his perplexity towards this island of ingenious beauty in a troubled ocean of vague intellectuals. (...) The carefully designed lights and the creative costume design stand out, and from which you understand the intention of the performance as something more than a paternalistic relief or a refuge which could have induced more to morbidity than to the heart.”
