Press review:

Haarlems Dagblad – door Sabine van den Berg,

…In a pulp of little duets and group dances one piece stands out. That’s ‘April Aria’ of Edan Gorlicki. He has his dancers wear skirts and he put his choreography to music of Vivaldi and Purcell, which was originally written for castrati singers. When this part begins, you all of the sudden get the feeling like something new originates. …

…Of all the choreographers, Edan Gorlicki kept his footing the best. Not only with April Aria, but also with the work Lets Not And Say We Did, to music of Craig Armstrong and lyrics of the dance maker himself. …
