"Ketley's "Rauschen 13", an abstract, formally stringent trio for the astounding Finkelman Berkett, Julie Rose Friedrich and Jordan Isadore, took full of advantage of these dancers' speed and refined athleticism. It was set to a noise dominated score that at times suggested waves or wind storms. A couple of times the dancers responded by blowing air of their own. Ketley's infused his non-stop, stage-embracing choreography with little details that put touch of the ordinary onto, and perhaps "humanized," these dancer athletes. Fingers became tools of exploration, sometimes acting like antennas, other times they simply lifted a shirt. "Rauschen" clearly paid tribute to Finkelman Berkett as dancer -- superfast, supersexy, superexpressive."
