"The festival Madrid en Danza closed last Sunday with what was undoubtedly its best creative work in dance: Paredes de Papel (also known as Brittle Failure). Working with a very thoughtful and sustained balance between the intellectual and the choreographic material, Paredes … demonstrates how aesthetic awareness, maturity in scenic knowledge and the right selection of interpreters, are the basic ingredients for a successful work of ballet or contemporary dance and not mere platitudes. The choreographer adapted with ease to a space as unique as it was compromised: the heritage of Corral de las Comedias, and in fact used the lights, hollows and perspective of the space to incorporate the installation by the Japanese artist Yoko Seyama into a harmonious whole."

“The proximity and concentration of the three dancers, spoken interventions, and set design, collaborate and complement each other to move the abstraction to something more tangible. Here there is communication between the characters, yes there is serenity, introspection, moments of calm and even enjoyment. “Paredes de Papel” does come to a conclusion and the final act is a visual and emotional discovery that manages to connect with the audience and move them. Something that, one supposes, any performance aims for, as avant-garde as it may be.”
