Tenebre – Heiner Frost, Niederrhein Nachrichten

Tenebre-6

“Hubert Essakow’s ‘Tenebre’ glows from the very first second. Here we see a choreographer deep into the possibilities of staging, use all the apparatus available to him and create a unity of rare poetic concentration. One wishes to believe that everything about this ballet is brilliant and follows it breathlessly. (…) It’s all incredible: the lighting (Mark Doubleday), the stage and costumes (Merle Hensel), the music, the dancers. This piece can be packed away in one’s soul as iron rations for harsher days – that’s it.”
