cultural view point of its maker, as well as her skill to put human
problems on-stage in a remarkable way. Gabri Christa is an exquisite,

never idle, doesn't try to please and her movement is unpredictable,
surpising and makes for original, fascinating dancetheater. Especially

her movement unique and strengthen in me the belief that she has more
surprises in store.
