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

”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.”
