"It represents a break, and a necessary break with the theatrical tendencies toward the gloom and pamphleteer of the last decade "- Jorge Federico Travieso. Lame Centipede. Daily Weather. 1989

"... Mobilize resources wisely various theatrical language and suggestive thanks to its ability, make the viewer (Aristotelian without being absorbed by the cohesive force emanating from the stage) it becomes an accomplice of the character. "- Helen Humaña. Cronopios. Daily Weather. 1989
