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.
The three women, like in fairy tales, resemble many, but destiny set their course in bitter asymmetry.
First review of Parting Ways was published in an on-line magazine f21.hu.
Maciej Kuźmiński succeeded in creating a successful – inspiring and exciting – spectacle by combining Edward Stachura’s prose, music and dance.

Against the background of patriotically associated music we see a set of motion clichés, which can constitute a satirical image of modern society (not only Polish)
An in-depth review of Fabula Rasa by Polish Dance Theatre has appeared on Poznań cultural website.
I have not encountered such an excellent choreography for a long time

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.
Rozbark Theater may not blaze the way in contemporary dance, but in combination with the words – it makes an amazing impression.

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]
Monika Witkowska from Poland danced to present the terrible political situation in her country, especially the attempt to tighten the abortion law, for which she received public applause.

The solo piece "I fought Piranhas" by the Polish choreographer and company director Maciej Kuźmiński was read like a feminist statement, danced viciously and with defiant anger by Monika Witkowska.
Read whole review in German by Michael Scheiner from Mittelbayerishe Zeitung.
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.
