From Argentine troupe an exciting shock by Octavio Roca in the San Francisco Chronicle:

Quote:
Krapp blends dance, theater

Few knew what to expect, and the shock of the new was wonderful. An Argentine dance troupe called Grupo Krapp had its North American debut Thursday night at the Roda Theater before a cheering crowd. The program, which continues tonight, includes some of the most original dance and theater of the season.

'Psychotic but endearing' characters


By Victoria Looseleaf

Quote:
Grupo Krapp, founded in 1995 and headed by choreographers Luciana Acuna and Luis Biasotto, takes its name from Samuel Beckett's character in the tragicomic one-act play "Krapp's Last Tape," in which a man reviews a record of his life. The eight-member company of dancers, actors and musicians has created its own brand of subversive movement language meant to match Beckett's absurd vision.

The tug of a primal push and pull
Dispiriting name notwithstanding, Grupo Krapp impresses with their own brand of playful absurdity and thoughtful commentary on life's primal desires.



By Jennifer Fisher , Special to The Times

Quote:
The dance troupe called Grupo Krapp is from Argentina and they probably don't know how dispiriting their name sounds to English-speakers. Never mind. If they want to hint at their brand of playful absurdity, replete with thoughtful commentary on life's primal desires, then their homage to Samuel Beckett's play, "Krapp's Last Tape," is as good a gesture as any.

Grupo Krapp
The Roda Theatre at Berkeley Repertory Theatre - Reviewed by Allan Ulrich

So rarely do Americans have the opportunity to sample any dance from Latin America, except for those packaged-for-tourists ethnographic extravaganzas, that the Halloween night American debut of this Argentine dance-theater troupe would have been a newsmaker—even if the dances hadn't been so insidiously entertaining.

What astonished most about this seven-member, collaborative troupe from the tip of the hemisphere was its pedigree. American observers had no trouble finding comparison with the word-cum-movement essays of Maguy Marin. It was easy, also, to spot the sources of the eclectic vocabulary, suffused with influences of contact improvisation, hip-hop, physical comedy (of the abusive, Three Stooges ilk), and gymnastics.

A Little Beckett, a Little Beatles, a Lot of Energy From Argentina

By JENNIFER DUNNING
The New YorkTimes
July 17, 2004

DURHAM, N.C., July 13 — For a few moments at least, the American Dance Festival was almost as dramatic offstage as on. Midway through the opening night performance on Monday of "Mendiolaza," a new work by the Argentine company Grupo Krapp, the houselights went up, and a stagehand came out to announce that the theater had to be evacuated because of a possible fire.
