“Like a spring flower that blossoms in a flowing movement. ‘Motel Mozaïque’ has been working on embedding and appearance in the Rotterdam city center since 2001, but it was only this weekend that the adventurous arts festival really got a grip on that quite difficult ‘epicenter’. Much more than in previous years, the mix of pop, dance, music, visual arts and other fun was noticeable in and around the TENT., De Unie, Rotterdamse Schouwburg and Nighttown axis.” – Eva Crouwell
