Review Lala POP Vårt Land 20 okt 2014
“She is one of the most successful creators of dance for children in the country, and always manages to capture both children and adults with her performances.
Kulturkompasset 2014 ”
“A performance such as this is filling an important cultural purpose”
“Choreographer Inger Cecilie Bertrán de Lis has consciously gone all in on achieving good communication with this audience. And the fact that her starting point is their body language, is a major success, and she simultaneously introduces certain dance moves, which elevates the performance to something more than merely imitating reality”
“The dancers succeed in performing with some of the open wonder that characterizes young children”
“Lala POP, which was performed at Dansens Hus, is a compact little nugget of a performance”
