Press coverage

"The result is White (Brain) Wash, an excellently fun, visually unique and musically virtuoso performance of a European level. (...) While the two comedians Paolo Nani and Line Svendsen perform practically all of the time behind a transparently light curtain, the orchestra’s nine members sit closer to the audience, placed on each their side of the small stage they practically fill.
