Press Quotes

"Mr. Morris's melding of music and movement is utterly lucid - not because of the harmony he creates, but because he allows the forms to be heard and seen in pure and equal ways."

- The New York Times

"The choreography made them [the dancers] look glorious, illuminating all their most sophisticated qualities and polishing them a notch more...The strings of jumps that bore the dancers from corner to corner weren't about distance or height or speed, but about pure, clean air."

- The Washington Post

"Morris really knows how to create, and show off, counterpoint between the upper and lower body... [Pacific is] a beautiful, contemplative piece."

- Dancetabs
