Villagevoice – Review Body
“In a setting that looks something like a hospital, the creators explore pain and pleasure in accord with conventional gender roles. Jorge Arbert chases Ina Stockem, repeatedly hauling her in by her ponytail; she comes to expect it. Arbert and Vincent Verburg fight ferociously, gradually stripping down; they grab each other’s nipples and you imagine worse. You begin to smell them. It’s alarmingly real. The two younger women are the nurturers. They stroke and lick and cradle the exhausted men. It’s the women, too, who sometimes sit at the back and show each other the contents of their handbags. The young women get lugged about and set down like statues in ways they’d rather not be posed, the guys becoming increasingly harassed and competitive. There’s no “story.” Body is one of those disjointed worlds in which things happen and then other things happen—perplexing, infuriating, touching.”
