Read some of the highlights below.

“The connection between the artists reflects a study in difference and commonality, a kind of measuring of where I have been and where I am going. What’s left is audible breath, expended energy, something very human, with rays of fluorescent light illuminating what remains in that psychic space.”

Philip Szporer, The Dance Current

“Wang and Abreu convey palpable intentionality—a sense of purposeful engagement and intimate awareness. Each fragmented interaction holds the potential for alienation or insight, hovering precariously in-between these possibilities.”

Istvan Dugalin, Theatre Reviewer

“The performance perfectly encapsulates that central theme of “translation”, and it simultaneously embraces and alienates the audience through what Wang and Abreu allow us to understand.”
