“Tackling »The Rite of Spring« is a challenge in itself. Janusz Orlik met this challenge with so much vigor as to exploit fully the potential of both dance and music.”
Marta Kula, nowytaniec.pl

“We see the dancers make a sacrifice of themselves to the audience but what comes to the forefront, perhaps even to the point of being self-sufficient, is their mutual interaction. Their sacrifice comes about through this interaction.”
Julia Hoczyk, Didaskalia

“Orlik’s choreography is full of fine virtuosity mixed with all-pervasive eroticism, vitality and charm.”
