"This is a performance -carefully worked out in its details- which unveils to the audience the essential behind the familiar, with underlying humor, irony and imperceptible subversiveness. All this is done in a "handmade", analogue manner, most appropriate for our times."
Evi Proussali – Athens Voice

"Nova Melancholia, with its particular and overwhelmingly creative visual language, sees Pontikas’ texts in a totally new spirit."  
Natalia Damigou-Papoti – LEFT.GR

"Stillness – the moving / truthfully avant garde new performance of Nova Melancholia (inspired by Pontikas’ texts) was the only thing that really touched us lately. In an apartment on Notara Street, a home full of middleclass memories and stuffed with feeling."
