    Press review

    Writer and date unknown, Arbeiderbladet [Oslo]:
    "We all have a warrior inside of us, and that is the basis for communicating intimately with the audience. The soldier is a timeless character, and the pain of being under the general's logic is what is described. All wars are different, but the warrior is always the same. The action revolves around a scream and can be considered a protest without words. Often it is through tragedy one sees the humorous, if it's only pathetic enough."

    Writer and date unknown, Klassekampen [Oslo]:
    "The play is performed by Henning Farner. It is a visual performance, with few words, but rich in a physical language within a space of nine times nine meters. Here nothing is said about war, but something about war is experienced. [...] I hope many get to take part in this performance."
