Dance Review: RIOULT- “The drama of Mozart lifted to new heights”

French choreographer Pascal Rioult brings his company RIOULT and a number of dynamic and diverse works to the to The Joyce Theater.  Known for his energetic choreography that draws from his experience dancing for the Martha Graham Dance Company but is uniquely his own, Rioult possesses a strong sense of traditional form and craft as […]

Dance Review: Disappointment at The Joyce

This is the second time I am seeing Pascal Rioult’s company, Rioult perform at The Joyce Theater, and I must say that I am somewhat disappointed this time around.  Based on my experience from last year, I had been anticipating beautiful long-legged dancers who create pretty lines with the attractive but somewhat standard choreography they […]

Dance Review: Jazz Ain’t Dead Rips APAP 2010 Showcase

On Sunday, January 10, 2010, I head downtown on the 1 train to Dance New Amsterdam, as they host a slew of cutting edge New York City dance companies in the 2010 APAP Showcase!

Dance Review: Richard Alston, Smooth Moves and Recklessness

Richard Alston’s newest season at the Joyce is a surprising medley of three works, blending disparate styles into one evening of stirring dance. Alston, a British choreographer, begins the program with Shuffle it Right from 2008- a very American dance for an American audience. Featuring the early jazz music of Hoagy Carmichael, Alston’s dancers glide […]

Dance Review: Dance Gotham at NYU Skirball Center

Though I’m about to see several very professional companies at the NY Skirball Center, the energy feels more like a dance competition than a performance.  There’s intensity, discussion in between pieces and altogether a "more real than nervous for the first day of kindergarten" tight-lipped thing happening.  Instantly Dance Gotham feels like a representation of […]

Dance Review: Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet… Everything You Expect and More!

Sunday evening I had the distinct pleasure of traveling by subway all the way up to the tip-top of the Bronx to the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts to see a company I have heard so many great things about but have never seen live. Well let me tell you, in short Lines Ballet […]

Dance Review: "A Light Conversation" with Wally Cardona & Rahel Vonmoos

Presenting at the Joyce SoHo, in A Light Conversation, Wally Cardona and Rahel Vonmoos skillfully address the complexity of relationships and the human condition by embracing ambiguity and crafting a landscape in which each viewer can follow their own path.
