“Original and touching, from the other side of the Atlantic, Ezequiel Sanucci, a versatile Argentinean dancer and actor, successful in Europe, brings grace and melodic Milonga accent on stage, by representing The Netherlands in the 35th Festival Internacional de Teatro de Oriente.

“Contemporary dance, accompanied legendary tango rhythm to tell a strong story full of free movements and sensual rhythms typical of the southern region. A work that in the words of the performers is based on a thorough research work, which added to the use of multimedia, provides tools and enriches a contemporary and abstract staging with expressive movements. The fact is that this piece to the satisfaction of the performers garnered the best applause from the audience.”

“The play, directed and written by Sanucci, is a theatrical proposal where tango and contemporary dance are merged. In addition to that, a comical audiovisual material made the audience laugh. As well the theater audience was impressed by this unique choreography which has been performed so well by the performers. ”

Argentina: VII Festival Cambalache 2010

Revista Noticias, Buenos Aires by Enrique Honorio Destaville:

“Ezequiel Sanucci dances together with the attractive German dancer Lydia Müller, both very strong dancers. Sannucci is doing very well as a choreografer in the development of the fusion, with interesting work, based on the life of the couple and the aimed goal: the residence permit which is asked by the EU countries. Their tango evolutions, some jokes, and some virtuose dance movements are remarkable.”

Balletin Dance, by Calos Bevilacqua, January 2011

“The night brought then the actions of Tango Residence Permit, a Dutch production directed by another countryman based in The Netherlands: Ezequiel Sanucci. The piece seeks to confront the world of a rational German with the one of a passionate Argentinean. The protagonists were Sanucci himself and Lydia Müller.”

The Netherlands: In the first presentation still on experimental phase.

Torito.nl, bij Rob Nuijten/editor, 27/07/2008

Recommended! Entertaining, easy, witty, original. Unfortunately, the dance and acting on the piece is after 45 minutes
over! Beautiful, dancing scene in slow motion with a beautiful symbiosis between the repetitive drumbeats and the repeated
dance movement. Impressive also by its simplicity and originality.

The audience is constantly laughing at well-timed scene changes, as a modern film. Good work to make it happen so fast.
At the end I had to taste some more emphasis on sensuality I might like, another emotion calls than the intended laugh.
Although there are really funny moments in it, I think the dramatic potential of this dance-theatre-research has more valuable
than to work as a comedy. But in any case, this a piece that I  would like to see again and that I recommend everybody not to
miss this chance, now that it is still offered for free.

Nelly, after the 2nd performance of July 28, 2008: “How beautiful!”

Breaking the Circle

Argentina: XIII Festival Nuevas Tendencias de Mendoza 2008

Dance magazine Balletindance, by Martin Goyburu, on October 2008

“He surprised everyone among all the other pieces (at the XIII Festival Nuevas Tendencias in Mendoza 2008.), mainly because of
his proposal, the use of different types of lighting, the sounds which are not very identifiable to the ear and because of his body
language for the speed and skill of his movements, unusual in the Argentinian dance. With a surprising end that  that leaves the
audience in a state of shock ”
