About Dancing With Anger – Forbrugermania, August 2015
“When Lotte Sighs Dancing with Anger entered the stage, I was taken by storm.”

About Dancing With Anger – Danstidningen, August 2015
“Another highlight of this year’s Copenhagen Summer Dance was Lotte Sighs well crafted work Dancing with Anger to music of Händel. The duet was performed by two impressive dancers from the Royal Danish Ballet.”

About Transparency – Arbejderen 2011
“This exceedingly concrete and physically raw dance piece, performed in a murderous pace, is a thought provoking innovation, a wordless comment on one of the most debilitating phenomena in our world.”

About Dancing With Anger – Dagbladet Roskilde, August 2015
“And a little later I was impressed by the two dancers Jonathan Chmelensky and Eliabe Vieira d’Abadia from the Royal Danish Ballet in a powerful duet by Lotte Sigh with many lifts and refractions, as Deer in a duel in “Dyrehaven”. Beautiful dancing!”

About Dancing With Anger – Teater1, August 2015
“Lotte Sighs Dancing With Anger with music from the Rinaldo Aria disseminated reference to the cruelty of Antichrist and made everyday anger to a dance object, that was a closer look worth.”

About Transparency – Terpsichore 2011
“Despite the entirely unsympathetic theme of the performance: the nature of corruption, this turned out to be one of the most beautiful pieces I have seen in a long time.”

“Personally I was blown away by the overall aesthetic expression of the performance, which was powerful, beautiful, up-tempo and interesting. Even though I have made an attempt, my experiences on this sunny autumn day cannot be captured on paper.”

JOURNAL 753 – Danstidningen, Sweden 2011
“The performance displays an array of great solos, duets and ensemble work reflecting the inner battles and survival instincts of a trapped human being and Lotte Sigh is a choreographer who never runs out of movement material.

“Journal 753”, like “Transparency” and “The Good, the Bad and You”, is an inspirational and refreshing breath of fresh air on the Danish contemporary dance scene. ”

About JOURNAL 753 – Terpsichore 2011
“The adrenalin is pumping all around the space and sounds are guiding us into a state of trance
where the dancers are creating energy and an accelerating flow. Like a foot stamping the floor
to the rhythm of music and you cannot stop.
Determination is superseded by powerlessness and movements catch the audience in a
universe filled with creatures of willpower.”

About The Good, the Bad and You – Terpsichore 2010
“The Good, The Bad and You” is a performance that dares to seek and to insist upon the meeting as the most important. The meeting in its most literal sense as a meeting between opposing traditions and cultures. In this case between the choreographer and the Russian dance company, but also the concept of meeting in a more abstract form.
Lotte Sigh’s choreography was extremely physical and overwhelming, like those moments in which the existential search amalgamates with those boundaries that keep us all in place – history, culture, background etc.
On stage in Petr Fomenko Theatre the dancers moved in and out of various relations. They stood on their heads, breakdance style, were thrown around like dolls and one couple’s duet was quickly followed suit by another couple. The perspectives were twisted and turned in all directions, also quite literally. At one point two of the dancers were filmed from above while they lay on the stage floor in varying positions. This was projected onto a screen, so the dancers were seen simultaneously moving on the floor and on the screen, where they appeared to be climbing upwards.
The choreography somehow resembled a fireworks, in one big explosion of physical energy. One rocket after another was launched across the stage as the many coloured lights illuminated the dancers’ bodies from different angles. It was a breathtaking journey as each tableau took root in the body allowing the performance to manifest itself physically amongst the audience.”

About “The Good, the Bad and You”, Dance Russia, 2010
“Gradually the dancers involve you in their world, share their emotions through the motion of their bodies, so you wish to look closely at the image they create.”
“There is a strange feeling of unity in the piece, happening in a burst of inspiration. One of the original ideas of the piece is the usage of a screen, which lets you see the dancers from above and from the side simultaneously and observe them creating the images. You can even hear their breath, feel their inner excitement and emotions, compressed and given to the audience step by step, sip by sip.”

About Remind Me “The city calling” 2008.
“In a tremendous pace the audience is witness to a Virginia Woolf-like showdown for dance.”

“In the black box space of Dansescenen and accompanied by Bjørn Svin’s electronic soundscape Lotte Sigh has created a breathtaking duet for the two eminent dancers Matilde Wendelboe Dresler and Phillip Benjamin Jenkins. The balance of a relationship has thus been portrayed with elements of tenderness, rebellion and confrontation”

About Remind Me – Berlingske Tidende 2008
In this highly explosive duet about the controversies of love, Phillip Benjamin Jenkins and Mathilde Wendelboe Dresler are wonderfully agile and dynamic in their powerful, spinning and rolling dance to the music of Bjørn Svin with its whispering voices, crackling sounds and pulsating rhythms.”
