Dear reader of some of my reviews, The rule is not to believe the good reviews and not to believe the bad ones, but look at the enrichment the project gave us all.

What made Bogaerts work amusing was the way its florid mime gestures were performed with deadpan solemnity
New York Times
Highlights were…a spoof murder mystery pas de trois by Marc Bogaerts, set, with unlikely glee.
New York Post
Marc Bogaerts work, an entertaining spoof of bourgeois melodrama
Bogaerts work shows off Witkowsky’s strong legs and Osborne’s Lesly Howard-style sobriety.
The Boston Globe
Fallen Angels is an emotionally draining, physically demanding work requiring a great deal of energy
The Florida Times
Sex Minutes: 75 minutes of a total-art product with dance, pantomime, music, singing, acting, words was a hit. For him sex starts in the womb. This work is a provocation from a great theaterman: Marc Bogaerts
It was a very original connection between modern dance, spoken theatre, installations and video-art
The main impression Marc Bogaerts evening gave, was the never leaving intensity, so the dance becomes a language, over the virtuosity and formal precision
The audience at least, loved it, giving the show a standing ovation
The program came to an end with the work of a Belgian choreographer, Marc Bogaerts, who proved on several occasions that he has something to say
A highlight is his eternal rebellion, done with wide moving jumps and Asian fighting
Well doing in the choreography was that it did not try to tell us a story, but that it developed an own lyrical movement language
The piece was choreographed by Marc Bogaerts. And this man has some amazing ideas. His mixed vocabulary is not for the purist. But man, is it choreography!
Bogaerts ballet, in the beginning laughed at, saw itself, at the end, being honoured with a standing ovation
A nervous, pushing and pulsing work always full of activity, dense, with breathing arm swings, incredible musicality and on the same times a free handling of that same music
Bogaerts reduces music not to birdtsjilping and easy rides, but brings it to the different phases of being
a human between exiting youth and a mighty past. With him life exists out of strength and joy. Than suddenly he gives us something to think about, only to go on since he is curious
In the famous Antonio Vivaldi score, where Jerome Robbins is as pretty and well-mannered as Sunday Social, Marc Bogaerts is earthy, funny, poignant and beautiful in a more elementary way

The choreography of Marc Bogaerts is full of invention very lyrical, contains superb and juvenile fever.
Pour la danse
… but one becomes the more interested in the dance as dance, and to this point Marc Bogaerts demonstrates his gift of inventing gestures, notably a follow-up of particularly audacious lift, which make his work particularly attractive
Marc Bogaerts is a wonderful choreographer. This was his best work. The ones not interested in a story were worried to be annoyed. Well no, they left with full enthusiasm
To the pounding rhythm of the music on trapeze, rings, ropes or tissue, the artists celebrate acrobatic and gymnastic movements. Bogaerts understands on the highest sensitive level to connect dance and artistic in a suspense of erotic
More exiting was the circus installation from Marc Bogaerts. It is a bitter commentary to the legal system of abortion. A naked woman caught in iron bars, ropes, wheels as a birth machine between the paragraphs of the law.
With high-class dancers and circus artists the public could travel from classical dance to American avant-garde, from circus to musical movements. All visions are allowed.
Marc Bogaerts is as chief-choreographer a king without a country. But people need to follow him. The audience already does
