Press Reviews

2011

Gina Mattiello spielt gekonnt mit der Überzeichnung, ohne ihre (beiden) Charaktere ins Skurrile oder Realitätsfremde zu führen... vollgepfercht mit klugen Beobachtungen, treffenden Analysen und bissigen Kommentaren ist dieser Abend doch leichtfüßig und unterhaltsam [...] 

Kronenzeitung 

 

2011

Mattiello unternimmt einen eindrucksvollen Vokalvortag, indem sie Stücke von Elisabeth Harnik nach Texten von Gertrude Stein, die sie mit allen Wassern der Verwandlungskunst wäscht. 

Freistil (Andreas Fellinger)

 

Wer denkt Körperbeherrschung war chinesischer Nationalzirkus, der hat das zweitägige Hörfest 2010 im Forum Stadtpark versäumt. Selbst für Zwischenapplaus war die Konzentration im Publikum zu groß. Oder war es die Ehrfurcht vor Ö1, das einige Performances live übertrug? Kapitulieren musste man mit Begeisterung vor Gina Mattiellos Darbietung. Die Frau ist eine verbale Marathonläuferin. Zwanzig Minuten sprach die Schauspielerin Traumprotokolle, von Dialekt, ins Englische  und wieder ins Hochdeutsche wechselnd, die Bernhard Lang zu der Komposition ICHT II verdichtet hatte.
