"The new concept of the Euro-Scene competition is based on collective battles, i. e. danced duels. [...] The dancers celebrate each other and the audience is so exuberant that you have to call it a party. This can be said for the Euro-Scene as a whole. For a long time, the joy of theatre in Leipzig has not been as tangible as at this festival."

Tobias Prüwer Freie Presse

"So there's no sign of a dwindling audience or theatre fatigue in Leipzig and the consistently high quality gives us hope for next year. Under Christian Watty, euro-scene is back as a major player in the city."

Torben Ibs tanznetz

"With a total of 15 euro-scene productions, a balance has been struck between opulent performances and intimate formats, between successful pieces such as Miet Warlop's 'One Song' at the start and the risk of new productions."

Dimo Rieß LVZ

"Thunderous applause was heard on many occasions during the six-day marathon, which ended on Sunday. The foyers of the Schauspielhaus and other venues such as the Lofft, Schaubühne and TdJW were packed."

Tobias Prüwer KREUZER Leipzig

"The new hybrid forms of dance, music theatre and theatre, lectures, films and discussions, as presented by Christian Watty, the director of Leipzig's "euro-scene", in this year's second edition of the festival, are anything but enigmatic or elaborate, but rather inclusive, instructive, discursive, political and comprehensible."
