“Choreographer Rachel Erdos presents Q & A, in this mature work, the fullest, deepest, most interesting she has created to date, she is searching for an appropriate response to relationships between two strangers. Throughout the piece, the combination of spoken and moved answers allows the audience to enjoy both worlds. The text is clear and the movement fills in the things that cannot be spoken with a fair share of humor.” (Ruth Eschell, Ha’aretz Newspaper June 2017).
“Erdos is trying to reach the personal and the intimate through complex movement she choreographed for a fantastic quartet of two men and two women that touches straight to the heart of feelings and personal connection. “ (Zvi Goren, HaBama Web Site, July 2017).
