2014 NYIT Award Nomination for Outstanding Innovative Design (Projection Design, Videoart and Animations)

"The sight of the modern stage techniques using projected images, videos, colors, lights and shadows helps the viewers to understand the texts from the mouth of the actors."
"The very powerful scenes were those in which the actors were acting out the story live on stage while in the background projections appeared at the same time."
"An interesting, very spectacular show"
- Barát Tamás WBPI / New York, Breuerpress International, April 8, 2014

"There are many gorgeous projections that fill up this space. [...] Federico Restrepo’s lighting is an enormous part of the show, as are the lunar landscapes and other projections designed by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger." - Ed Malin, nytheater now, March 30, 2014

"I’ve seen a few of New Stage Theatre’s previous shows and have always been struck by the absolutely stunning visual elements" Katy Einerson, Culture Bot, March 31, 2014

"I let my mind float away on a drunken cloud and into the absurd non sequitur universe of Italo Calvino. I found myself delighted. [...] The music is playful and lovely like the shifting backdrops of the universe in freefall, a solitary studio, or a beach party." Aurin Squire, New York Theatre Review, April 8, 2014

"Just saw COSMICOMICS, where Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger have totally outdone themselves. Amazing!!!!" - Laura Turegano, Associate Director, King Juan Carlos Center At NYU, April 4, 2014

"Visually extravagant beyond belief with a great cast, great costumes, and great fun! [...] GO see it!!" Jackie Rudin, Community Organizer, NYC, April 6, 2014
