"The avant-garde is a precursor to what is to come in art and Marble Crowd affirm that times will be good"
Sigríður Jónsdóttir about Øland
"Marble Crowd premiered what was quite possibly the best show of the last season. Øland was an ambitious and large scale performance piece confronting the ecological devastation ahead, perhaps showing the audience what has already happened."
SJ - GIFT Magazine about Øland
"The members of Marble Crowd are both authors and performers; and while their performance on stage is flawless they must first and foremost be complemented as authors."
Skandali about Øland
Spectacular pieces of art, which can sometimes fail, make the happiness of the audience perfect. To move mountains does not have to remain a utopian idea, as Marble Crowd shows thanks to a genuinely simplified collective way of working.”
