Writer and date unknown, Morgenbladet [Oslo]:
"The choreographer Ingun Bjørnsgaard has shaken the ground of the Greek history's Olympia town with her dance production [...] in which she kills off the female archetypes [...] By all means, do not miss this ballet."
Writer and date unknown, Klassekampen [Oslo]:
"[The production] is a great performance and a leap forward for Ingun Bjørnsgaard as well as Norwegian dance today."
Writer and date unknown, Aftenposten [Oslo]:
"It is a very respectable work with an aesthetic dignity speaking to the intellect, if not to emotions and involvement. [...] This production stimulated the brain, musically as well as in regard to motion."
