“Paiva is hot. His puppets are amazing, his team international and the performances are faster and faster sold out.”
Het Parool (NL), 2014

“Puppets are the terrorist of theatre, to get life the contact with the audience and destroy the 4th wall. The relation puppet and human, is the main of the work.”
Magazine Festival Spoffin (NL), 2013

“Corps à corps saisissant, Angel, à situer quelque part entre la danse et le théâtre. Est d’abord un spectacle de sensations. Duda Paiva est un interprète charismatique, magnétique même, et forcement physique. Et c’est précisément sa façon de bouger, d’exister physiquement sur la scène tout en faisant corps sa marionnette qui épate.”
La presse Montréal

“Duda Paiva, der mit den Puppen tanzt. Verblüffend wie Puppe und Mensch im Spiel verschmelzen und eine zauberhaft-surreale Welt entstehen lassen. Fasziniert folgt man der abstrusen Geschichte, die alle Gefühlsregister zieht. Viel Applaus für eine geniale Mixtur aus Tanz und Puppenspiel.”

“I mix my body with the puppet. (…) The puppet is not only the alter ego of myself, is also a being participating in the work that takes place on stage. It has a personality so strong, that sometimes its not only me who manipulates” i
Interview Fimfa (PO), 2015

“The beauty is that Duda Paiva’s creations are so life-like (…) a villainous puppet who whines, flatters and abuses in the arms of puppeteer/dancer Andreas La Monica.”
