Siren Leirvåg, lecturer in theatre studies at The University of Oslo, says the following about zero visibility corp. and Ina Christel Johannessen:

"The leader and choreographer of zero visibility corp., Ina Christel Johannessen, has developed an artistic strategy that exceeds some of the oppositions in contemporary dance; between art-dance and pop-dance, 'pure dance' and theatrical dance, humorous and serious dance.

As members of the audience we are thrown into crossroads between aesthetic extremes in physically explicit and powerful expressions. We are united in a belief in dance as an art form. It is perhaps in this insisting on the concrete and physically demanding choreography that zero visibility corp. place themselves in a theatrical dance tradition, creating their very own artistic profile."
