“Sometimes a little too much, crossing the boarders, crossing lines yet utterly wonderful, Redoing GENDER 1.5 and The WOMANhouse are certainly something worth experiencing. They will give rise to discussion and reflection”

**** - Kulturtid

 

“It is incredible how much control Andreas Constantinou has over his own body. This is art on the highest level. The finest thing about these two performances are that they live in the memory long after the show is done.”   – Kulturtid, Denmark, 2015

 

 

***** - A Mantastic World

 

“This show is for those who demand a little more then just a spectacle, it’s raw, it’s deep, it’s sharp and its straight to the point. It is both tasteless, offensive and extremely catchy”- A Mantastic World, Denmark, 2014

"He stands in a soft light and flexes his muscles, his body is toned, beautiful and well proportioned. He moves beautifully, gracefully and looks like a statue from antiquity. It is great to see a man addressing gender issues in ReDoing GENDER." - Teater1, Denmark 2014

"Choreographer and Performer Andreas Constantinou is a new exciting name on the Danish and international performance and dance scene. With his six-year performance-research project GENDERhouse, Andreas explores the link between gender, sexuality and society. The Woman House is the latest result of this research. The show, which was a quartet of four women dressed as men dressed as women, emphatically and humorously challenged the stereotypical gender roles and sexuality. The Woman House" was a power show, which left the audience breathless and enriched."
