Choreography shows the energy of insect’s world and their existence. Pictures framed with the light seems like cartoons (…) Dancers are playing well, though each of them is focused on different movement, only to zip like a puzzle for a while. (…) in their moves one can see classical training but the choreography is not humanlike. The insect creation resolves in spontaneous laugh. Thanks to precision of concept and concentration the artists manage to create a vision of insect universum and take the audience with them. The illusion of being in a different world is even bigger because of the light and music, or more likely sound, directed by Jan Komarek.
