London critics write bivalve reviews, such as “don’t miss it, it’s a wonderful work of art”, they talk about multi-level performances, which crept into each other like waves, performances memorably dynamic, with emotional energy, full of pulsating unforgettable images and atmosphere, and they say they are impressed by both clever directing and aesthetics.
Her rich artistic action, which we feel proud of, did not prevent her from being a mother, since she is married and a mother of two children.
