REVIEWS:

( * * * * * ) hyper-personal research is layered and universal
— theaterkrant.nl
( * * * * ) …She assembles and edits all this into a film that is as raw-realistic as it is frivolous, as moving as it is funny, as dramatic as it is optimistic.
— focus.knack.be
..raw but elegant..
— volkskrant.nl
…Elagoz’s self-presentation very intelligently exposes a taboo subject.
— standaard.be
Samira Elagoz not only captures zeitgeist convincingly, but also show a remarkable mastery of the tools of her trade. Her editing and framing skills are extraordinary, the dramaturgy flawless. She is uncompromising and does not aim to please. The calm selfassurance with which she renders this alarming and intimate story shows a very mature artist... In short: ‘Cock, cock, who’s there’ is performance that resonates long after you leave the theatre.

One of the five recommended works of Theater Aan Zee Festival

…In this trend of a generation of young creators with autobiographical performances Samira Elagoz goes a step further. Keenly she plays with the expectations of both her subjects and the audience.
