"The costumes and an all-white fabric floor were a canvas (literally) for the evanescent, inspired lighting and video design of Finnish theater artist Joonas Tikkanen. His stunning universe of visual, emotive effects ranged from anxiety-producing patterns reminiscent of early black-and-white television to sweeping, colorful earth-space vistas and bowls of glass set in circles of dancing light."

Gail Obenreder - Broadway Street Review

"Joonas Tikkanen’s inventive lighting and video projections of stark Finnish landscapes onto Marley flooring were captivating. His design includes kinetic light tubes which form a moving set piece with which the chorus and dancers play and dance.
