“Milena Sidorova’s inventive Withdrawn looks deceptively simple. The most telling tale of the evening, it elicits the most laughs and sparks tangible discomfort from the audience. It starts the most beautiful pas de deux of the evening. […] The beautiful choreography cleverly manages to increase their emotional distance while keeping them physically close. No matter the inversion or pose, the couple returns to stare at their screens. This piece, with its measured use of silence and music combined with complex lifts is a demonstration of Sidorova’s seemingly endless dance vocabulary. She rarely repeats herself.”
