“…she has an architect's eye—not just in terms of the structures she builds with moving bodies, but through her use of objects and scenic elements...The effect, as you may imagine, can be entrancing.”
- Deborah Jowitt, Arts Journal, July 8, 2017
“unabashedly somber and undeniably beautiful.”
- Janine Parker, Boston Globe, July 6, 2017
“...the dancers soar and swivel in scattered formation, patterns ever-shifting.”
“mesmerizing...a simmering pot slowly coming to boil.”
“swift, tripping, tangled, buoyant and exquisitely precise.”
“perfectly physicalized the sensations inspired by Shakespeare's sonnets, transforming dance into poetry.”
- Alexandra Villarreal, Huffington Post, June 21, 2016
