Press review

Bernt Kvalvik (1998, 22.10). Dansar med fargar (literally: Dancing with colours), Dag og Tid nr. 43:

"As for the acting, the most demanding with this piece is how often the expression changes. Soon there is biting realism, soon telepathic love dialogues with conjuring repetitions, soon pure and clear storytelling theatre. Literary Vidar Sandem has made a sound effort, considering how he has interwoven poetry and culture/historical background in these destinies.

But sometimes the distance between the expressions becomes too wide, or the transitions to sudden, and that is when the performance squeals a bit."
