”David Scarantino and Pekka Louhio’s powerful, energetic interpretation of the longing for contact and separation hit the audience like a wave to the shore.”

- Teatteri & Tanssi + sirkus, 5/2016 (Finland) / Could you...?

``David Scarantino’s dance made a majestic impression”


``Louhio and Scarantino exquisitely interpret the shifts of weight, expressiveness of the arms and subtle playfulness, typical of (Saarinen’s) movement language.”
