Press Quotes

"The playfulness of the choreography is tempered by a sort of solemn innocence, a youthful and yet gravely focused concentration not unfamiliar to anyone who has observed a serious young dance student at work."

- The Rogovoy Review

"The dance, set to 10 Bagatelles by Alexander Tcherepnin, consists of a series of vignettes that depict a restless, precocious child at play - an apt metaphor for Morris."

- The Boston Globe

"An earthy solo - rather, a duo with a chair."

- Daily Gazette
