"...the luxembourgish dancer and choreographer is one of the artists who, through her presence, instantly fills the whole spance and captivates the spectator. (...) the proof that the radiant emittance of force has nothing to do eith pomp and sensationalism."
"Femininity itself is celebrated and put in realtion to strength."
"When the "fight" comes to an end it has created a noticeable intimacy between the dancer and the audience. The initially individual struggle became a common one."
Christine Mandy for Journal 10.12.2018
"Warrior turns out to be a wonderful discovery."
Dieter Hartwig for Tanznetz.de 14.2.2019
"...Different from previous works, Hess surpasses the performer’s objective gaze onto
a supposed audience, and let the performing body burst over itself. There is nothing more
to hide, the fight with subjectivity has already started. In the physical excavation, she lets
the choreography surpass itself, at once pumping the body full of material - and emptying it
all out. This is a body of noisy memories, whose senses flow beyond it’s physical scape.
It’s body of the now is at war against itself...."
