"Gabriela Carrizo packs the thriller as a comedy, underlining the slapstick with black humor. One wished Berlin had more such highlights."
"Very strange and yet so human. Between black series and a therapy session."
"Wonderful how Gabriela Carrizo combines black humor with an exuberant scenic fantasy."
""The missing door […] is a surreal fantasy of the world between slapstick and horror."
"The power of each piece of the trilogy lies in the permanent unpredictability of events. […] The moments of surprise arise primarily from dance - from a seductive as well as compelling movement language that describes an overwhelmingly heightened atmosphere of psychic primal fears."
"The famous ingredients of the two founders of the successful Belgian collective Peeping Tom are again present: dance, acrobatics, illusionism, cinematic suspense. And mad humour. […] The theatrical qualities of the nine excellent dancers are fully used."
"The typical mix of magic, effects, slapstick and contortion is bombastic; the suspense is perfect. The entire piece is still worthy of the comparison with the surrealistic TV series Twin Peaks." **** (4 stars)
"These dancers delivered an incredible performance. With their bodies, they challenge the rules of dance and the laws of nature. In [The hidden floor], humour, darkness and beauty coincide in superlative degree."
"Carrizo’s choreographic language is agile and sharply imaginative"
"Choreographer Gabriela Carrizo's piece is so innovative that it would have been worthy of the great Pina Bausch herself." ***** (5 stars)
"Some remarkable moves are shared among the seven players: a shimmering strobe walk, a fabulous floor bounce and most incredible of all, a repeated back bend that sends shivers up your spine."

"A vigorous example of surreal dance horror." **** (4 stars)
"Dance which thoroughly shakes you up." **** (4 sterren)
"[The missing door] is like a good Netflix series; the highly disturbing, ad-hoc relationships and events leave you wanting more."
"A dazzling, extravagant experience."
"I have not seen any piece like it to date. [ ] I am not surprised NDT takes on an idea like this, and I doubt that any other group of dancers could have co-created the incredible spectacle we watched."
"A surreal thriller which makes 'Twin Peaks' feel like a walk in the park. [ ] Extraordinary how Carrizo depicts derailment in a physical way, touching upon our deepest fears and turning the whole into a hallucinatory trip.”
"Carrizo doesn't just make dance theater, she makes a unique theater experience."
