“The icon reflecting the kingdom of-the-falling, remote and deserted, where everything is built on quicksand.”
REMOTE EDENS portraits an un-modern, from times bygone, picture of love between a man and a woman. A relationship where mutual dependence rules over self-emancipation.

“Following the group piece ‘Requiem For A Dog’ and the solo ‘The Chair’, Popovici now looks at a couple’s relationship. As in her previous pieces, she does not go down any well-trodden paths but takes on the full complexity of the subject”
“Ioana Mona Popovici created something distinctive of her own: a creative cosmos that obeys its own laws rather than those of the market…”
Hartmut Regitz, BalletTanz Magazine
“Remote Edens is a performance for theorising about theatre.”
