Review in Le Monde 23 April 2013 by Isabelle Regnier:

Wednesday night, the walls trembled in the theater one of the Centre Pompidou. Albert Serra had inaugurated his retrospective with Cuba Libre, mesmerizing short film tribute to Fassbinder and his actor Gunther Kaufmann. The troupe performer Jordi Valls, known as Vagina Dentata Organ, took possession of the premises to carry out, at the request of the master of ceremony, a ritual of "purification" screen.

The first tableu - a young woman in a long dress playing classical violin air while two others diverted in a punk fashion Christological symbols - was swept away by a hurricane came backstage, an army of drummers whose roar rose up dive the room in a trance. Out of the back door, percussionists rolled down to the screen and ransacked the footsteps of previous performance, reducing a hedge shattered mirrors, throwing rolls of toilet paper in front of the public. The spirit of Fluxus in the air, enhanced by a dash of tribal manhood Catalan.
