“spürt man plötzlich ein Knistern: wie Splitter aus verschiedenen Welten fügen sich die Energien von Text, Ton und unterschiedlichen Tanzstilen zusammen. "and our Faces vanish like water" wird zur zitatenreichen Auslegeordnung. Es bilden sich Brennpunkte von starker emotioneller Kraft. Ihre Stärke ist die Unvorhersehbarkeit.”

“in the experimental piece [And our faces vanish like water], in which the movements of the ensemble meet the sung statements of classical soprano (Mélanie Adami) and the Bern Beat boxer Steff La Cheffe, you feel a sudden crackle. Like fragments from different worlds, the energies of text, sound (Dave Maric) and different dance styles coalesce. "And our faces vanish like water" transforms into a whole range of options rich with quotations. There are Hotspots of strong emotional force; unpredictability is their strength.”
Der Bund, February 2009
