Gone to get milk is chock full of sparkling moments between its three performers, each of them a precise mover with plenty of dancerly presence but whose dynamics were edged with the sharp corners of manipulative intention and emotional specificity, revealing them also as fine actors. Kuniskis quotes from genres and even fellow expressionist artists, but with a unique style of her own and an intense, mature focus on her subject matter and the development of her choreographic language. She should definitely be on the watch list of potential bright spark choreographers to come out of Resolution! this year. [...] Ieva Kuniskis’s tense and quirkily erotic trio Gone to get milk, was an unusual and brilliant standout.

The content of Gone to get milk, which balances fruitfully on the margins of dance and physical theatre, is fuelled mostly by a blend of simple and quirky gesture. Gesture that despite being accompanied by a somewhat comical score, subtly and effectively unearths the feelings that seemingly lurk in the depths of ones being, when strangled by what reveals itself to be the vicious cycle of an unworkable, yet comfortable situation.

Physical theatre work typically neglects choreography, so it's rare to see a work which is both experimental as well as choreographically strong. Even rarer is a piece which is 25 minutes long and doesn't feel its length: the characters and their interactions are entertaining enough that the time flies quickly, and this could easily be the start of a much longer piece for Kuniskis. For starters, we need to see more of Helen Aschauer, and secondly, Gone To Get Milk deserves a stronger ending.
The moment a bag of oranges drop and roll across the entire stage at the outset of this piece, you know you’re in for something a little different. Ieva Kuniskis's physical theatre piece Gone To Get Milk employs humour, mime and gesture with an accomplished dance vocabulary thrown in.
