A great review of the first foreign performance of Plateau. Thomas Linden in Koelnische Rundschau writes
With epic breadth, but also with many great images, with a cleverly ironic text and a well-rehearsed ensemble that moves like an oiled machine, the spectator is offered a concentrated dose of dance theatre performance.
What a wonderful contrast to the Dutch, on the other hand, is offered by the ensemble of the Rozbark Theater from Poland and its artistic directors Maciej Kuźmiński and Paul Bargetto. The six-person troupe on stage fights passionately for the belief in mermaids, UFOs and the equality of the Mary Mother of God with the Holy Trinity. Behind the light humor of the ensemble, however, there is a seriousness that gets under your skin. Because here the mechanisms of oppression are exposed with which the Church and politics, or rather faith and power, try to curtail the freedom of art and the sexual orientation of people.
With epic breadth, but also with many great images, with a cleverly ironic text and a well-rehearsed ensemble that moves like an oiled machine, the spectator is offered a concentrated dose of dance theatre performance. Clearly it was important to Rozbark Theater to make a difference with its production. And it worked. However, the theater did not receive any funding for its project from the Polish state or the Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation.
