"Dark density... fulfilment instead of pleasure... music like a restless night. Thoughts and memories drift through the brain like shreds of fog: beautiful, sad, comfort and guilt... You are at the mercy of these sounds. This is not pleasure - but it can be fulfilment... Yui Kawaguchi is a responsive translator..."

"This digital diary cannot and should not replace what has been lost, it is also something like an artistic mourning work with many facets. …“

"You see and hear a concentration of cooperation..."

"With small, one-minute video clips, the Kuss Quartet and members of the music theatre group Nico and the Navigators reflect on the lockdown and their cancelled joint project for the Schwetzingen Festival...unpretentiously poetic descriptions of everyday life."

Jesper Klein, 09. – 15.05 2020
"In short, fast or meditative clips, based on the complete recording of all Beethoven string quartets published by Rubicon Classics, individual miniatures of the artists are put together, which, as a growing digital diary, store small memories such as time capsules or reminiscences of the shared present in the current isolation."
Rémy Franck, 30.04.2020
"... The group of singers, dancers and actors had already rehearsed together for two weeks.
Now everyone stays at home - and continues the creative process..."

"Augmented Reality" sounds particularly tempting among all the digital terms... It's awesome to see here, at the Georg Kolbe Museum in Berlin, a group of actors who never see what we experience thanks to additional graphics, pictures and sketches. How exactly the real bodies fit into a graphically designed landscape, sometimes a Bauhaus kitchen, sometimes the Israeli memorial Yad Vashem: "That makes any stage design completely superfluous."

"My God, it was all great and beautiful!"
Andre Sokolowski, 02.02.2020
"The direction of Nicola Hümpel, who together with the stage designer Oliver Proske provided a contemporary production of the historical material, was original and full of humour... The sold-out philharmonic hall gave a big applause for it."
