Quotes from the press

“Helena Bittencourt e Goos Meeuwsen, are two clowns, two actors, two acrobats that pursuit the capacity of shaping their caracters filled with humanity , naive, philosophers, elegantly decadent, comic and full of surrealism .. They move with lightness and extreme dexterity on the scene. They use elegantly minuscule details to build tragicomic situations.”
Torino today, Italy
Bianco su Bianco

"They are not straightforward clowns in traditional circus, they are especially Clown Characters that sometimes move the audience into tears"
Piet Venhuizen, De Gelderlander

“... And in spite of the fact that only two performers acting on stage (the exceptional Helena Bittencourt and Goos Meeuwsen), here we are in the paradigm of the whole clown category ... The three main types of clowns are: the clown-speaker , The "clown de reprise" (the one responsible for filling the voids and relaunching the representation) and the clown-august (by definition "the man who takes the slaps"). And Bittencourt and Meeuwsen incarnate all three of them... "

STROOM, Cirque de la Liberte

...”But defining them as 'actors' is probably reductive: Helena Bittencourt and Goos Meeuwsen have not only played (in a language other than them: she is Brazilian and he Dutch), but also sung, played (a guitar and a saw) Numbers of clown and acrobatics. On the stage the two move lightly building tragicomic situations with a very high precision”
