“Tommi Brem’s video projections enhanced the stage in a fascinating manner. Intertwined with Christophe Forey’s light design, which captured Solaris’ flexibility in plays with illumination, tentacles of light are creeping in through the windows like fluid cell-structures. Technical light signals shoot up the walls. As the sleeping Harey rises as immaterial projection to follow Kris – she is dependend on his “thoughts” and is stopped in her desparation by the locked door – it was a visual climax.”
