100% Obey (2018) The musical tone, the dialogue and its spirit all work to perfection with the disenchantment of a generation of Londonites on the outskirts. [Full Review in Spanish] - El Pais (Spain) EDIT

Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2019
No Score Yet In Your Hands (Au bout des doigts) (2018) In Your Hands doesn't have it's own style in staging and has a rather gaudy creative impulse in the sequences surrounding love and sex. [Full Review in Spanish] - El Pais (Spain) EDIT
