“a mini-masterpiece of choreographic craft”
- Lisa Jo Sagola, Backstage, April 08, 2010
“The evening's most breathtaking... A hypnotic piece from first image to last.”
“...the gleaming white rectangles, in a variety of lengths, recall the movable pedestals of 1930s modern dance. But Ms. Lang uses them in ingenious ways...”
- Jennifer Dunning, New York Times, March 04, 2008
“There is much to commend this young choreographer ... Lang made work so architecturally precise, yet so rewarding of classical dance technique, that I really felt I had finally seen something new.”
- Cathy Harding, C-Ville Weekly, March, 2006
“To Familiar Spaces in Dream could be described as a deconstructionist ballet that explores space, forms, and movements from a variety of dance genres and even other art forms.”
“Lang's choreography built a deepening emotional current that, by the end, appeared to engulf dancers and stage”
