From dramma.it:

‘This show, Matera 2019 European Capital of Culture event, fortunately succeeds above all because in listening to the place or rather the places in which it takes place...this is the significant core incorporated in this collective Work, an aesthetic experience shared since its conception, built on multiple syntaxes that mix dance, song, acting and even creative contingency, mixing different lives and multiform and metamorphic stories in them..A work of great beauty and figurative impact that, also for its debut at the end of the European 2019 event, can be a candidate to best represent it...the venue was crammed and show received with deserved enthusiasm.’
