The Australian Age (Isle)
"Isle, a pas de deux by William Soleau, danced by him and Helene Roux, was the highlight of the program. Soleau who is a tremendous asset to the company both as dancer and choreographer showed further proof of his strength and artistry."
Patricia Laughlin
Back Stage NYC (Isle)
"Here is a short but startling work, much of it conceived in a contemporary vein. Still, it isn't at odds with the music, but rather complements the score. Although a short piece, its depth and mood stay with you long after the conclusion."
Jennie Schulman
Palm Beach Daily News (Isle)
"The piece almost re-defines the term "classical" as it takes its two dancers - clad in gleaming white leotards marked with marble-like veins - through an extraordinary series of movements, poses, holds and embraces, such as one might find in a series of sculptures by Rodin."
Juliette de Marcellus
