"The choreography is inventive and mixes different universes, from futurist to primitive. […] All the ingredients are there for a unique and surpising moment."

"Peeping Tom […] surprises us once more, by their inventions. Not to miss."

"This landscape of the untamed imagination may be about childhood, but Child is not a children’s show. You’ll leave wanting to treat children not just with care, but with caution." **** (4 stars)
The Guardian

"Child is full of queasy moments. Its means are bizarrely bold but the emotional pathology portrayed is all too real." **** (4 stars)
The Stage

"What unfolds, with unabashed and sometimes crass-seeming dream logic, is an unpredictable series of darkly comic encounters between people robustly embodied by the game, diversely talented cast." *** (3 stars)
The Times

"Peeping Tom’s stage world is insightful as well as strange." *** (3 stars)
The Independent

"[Their shows] dig the furrow of our unconscious, in a seductive, hyper-spectacular form. Their living pictures take us through a forest of symbols, populated by virtuoso dancers. High class!"
RTBF

"You recognise in this piece the surrealist signature of the company, but because of its psychological quality it rises above the previous parts [of the trilogy]."

"[…] Worried tourists, a threatening gamekeeper, a baby fir tree calling for attention, masked creatures: you seem to be with Lynch, Buñuel or Burton"
La Libre Belgique

"The realistic environment is transformed into a series of strange and surrealistic images, with figures in a hostile atmosphere. At the same time, it also shows the real joy of theatre, because it shows things that have never been seen and is an emotional experience, like a dream."
La Repubblica

"A must-see performance for lovers of divergent art."
En Platea

"Kind is a highlight of Julidans. […] What Chartier and Carrizo emphasize here with diabolic pleasure, is that in addition to playful imagination in the child’s soul, there is also aggression, jealousy and cruelty." **** (4 stars)
NRC

"The true Picasso of ballet are Franck Chartier and Gabriela Carrizo."
Cultureel Persbureau

"Kind is as discomforting as it is bewitching to behold."
Movement Exposed

"The work has a plasticity that leaves no one indifferent, with very measured characters, built on myths or on monsters and with an almost cinematographic soundtrack."
ABC Sevilla

"An evil ‘Alice in the land of horrors’."
Diario de Sevilla

"A dream in which you can easily feel disorientated, or rather a nightmare that could also have come from a perverse Haneke, Lanthimos or Ulrich Seidl."
Diario de Mallorca
14/05/2019
"[...] Groundbreaking aesthetic and dance quality that takes your breath away. The globally acclaimed and distinguished troupe offers a highly intelligent work of art that goes far beyond genre boundaries."
Volksfreund

"Peeping Tom has developed a unique formal vocabulary. [...] They push absurd and cruel humor to surrealism, exposing our worst nightmares and unfulfilled desires."
Lëtzebuerger Land

"[Kind is] unexpected, funny and disturbing, sometimes to the point of discomfort. It is a success."
