HELENA WALDMANN

FACE ... à

EVERYBODY IS DOING WHAT HE WANTS
... through the mirrors of Helena Waldmann you see a woman and a man lying, standing far away from each other or passing by. They touch each other only once or twice - and these are the moments when lights turn off. This is why everything can happen to the spectator - a voyeur à la Duras, everything what he wants. There is no better way to transform this kind of text.
Christine Wahl, Der Tagesspiegel 13.5.1996

IDEAS OF THE BODY
The disassociated presence of the dancers in their overall surroundings succeeds in creating an effect which rarely works on stage. It leaves room for visions, memories and fantasy, to such an extent that the spectator is drawn bodily into the action. The simultaneity of common experience and loneliness is suddenly brought home. Helena Waldmann and Susanne Winnacker (dramaturg) have succeeded in producing a minor masterpiece - presenting confusion as a prerequisite of experience.

LIFE WHEN LYING DOWN
Waldmann has succeeded in combining exellently the advantages of theatre, the atmosphere of a literary text and the emotions and reactions of the audience. This is not real life. It is still theatre, but theatre that lives.
Dirk Fuhrig, Frankfurter Rundschau 19.4.1996
