"Rarely does a choreographer of contemporary dance manage to combine gracefully the technical precision and elegance of classical ballet with the innovation of modern dance, Enrico Labayen succeeds at this task...hypnotic and mesmerizing, a refreshing vision of contemporary dance." -Dance Magazine
"Labayen's work is not the touch and go celebration of moment favored by choreographers but an espousal of commitment. His work is gutsy, earthy and emotionally hungry. It's wonderful to see someone going so bravely against the pull of the times." -SF Focus
"...showed Labayen at his most sophisticated, allowing the movement to be nuanced and textured while flowing organically from one choreographic idea to the next... the beauty was the high level of professionalism that Labayen's company brings to the stage, the material was well rehearsed and choreographically complex." - SAFEhouse for the Performing Arts
