It is difficult to say as a guy, but I felt as if I was being raped. (al. 1993)

It was an impressive and disturbing set. DDV’s performance especially made a deep impression on me, and even then I didn’t feel he quite reached the limit (wherever that might be). I am fascinated and I find everything so confronting that I no longer really know what to do with all my impressions now. (avdv. 2003)

I wept during your performance with emotion, excitement, with everything all at once. It was that good. As I said to someone, it was like sex. As if your ‘being’, your ‘soul’ is penetrated. (s. 2010)
