Monika Żmijewska reviews Plateau in one of the best known Polish newspapers - Gazeta Wyborcza.
It perfectly accommodated Polish phobias, ills, myths, touched taboos, reaching for unobvious means of expression.

A new review by Jerzy Doroszkiewicz appeared after the Białystok performance that sparked controversy at the Kaleidoscope Festival. Read the whole review in Polish
Comic scenes and monologues that bring to mind the humor of Monty Python’s movies, amuse and worry at the same time
Joanna Sarnecka reviews Plateau for the main on-line dance editorial taniecpolska.pl [eng dancepoland.pl]
a cosmopolitan bigos, deconstructing national symbols, mocking lofty values and great ideals, and at the same time spiced with British humor. […] The performes have no easy task, but they cope well with the demanding scenario – both dance and acting wise.

Witkowska performs dynamic choreography with technical precision, energy and commitment. The heroine's internal opposition to the situation is palpable, and the will to fight has authenticity, which makes the whole convincing.

definitely the most interesting is the statement by Monika Witkowska, addressing an important topic (calling it "feminist" would be another condemnation to the sex ghetto, a universal problem), verbal message enriching with a strong, expressive, consciously non-defective movement.
