Dance Review: Dance Theater Voodoo Queen

Dance Theater "Voodoo Queen" cast a spell on me this past Sunday evening  at the Ailey Citigroup Theater, NYC.  I found myself transported to New Orleans, almost two centuries ago, to experience the legendary tale of the Voodoo Queen through dance, music, and storytelling. Inspired by the novel "Voodoo Dreams" by Jewell Parker Rhodes, this […]

Dance Review: Miami City Ballet, A Balanchine Love affair

The poem was developed into a story told by the […]

David Parsons at the Joyce, NYC

DD Dorvillier/ human future dance corp, Choreography, a Prologue for the Apocalypse of Understanding, Get Ready!

It’s scary to think that perception of a thing may be more of what makes a thing than the thing itself, if you get what I’m saying. The first time I saw DD Dorvillier’s work, almost five years ago at PS 122, I hated it. Sat. night I saw her work again, and my opinion […]
