"Rich colors, entrancing choreography and artful exhibitionism, an unforgettably outré theatrical experience based on the life and works of Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dalí."
-Mcallister Writ, SHEPHERD EXPRESS
"A phantasmagorical concert of dance that is whimsical, disturbing, gorgeous, grotesque, graceful, obscure…but always breathtakingly daring." -Jeff Grygny, EXAMINER.COM
"Thrillingly ambitious...Quasimondo, once again [suggests] how exciting it can be to slip one's comfy moorings — and make new discoveries by getting wildly lost." -Mike Fischer, JOURNAL SENTINEL
