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."
    New York Times
  • "...they [the dancers] jump and turn in such synchrony with Harrison’s stormy music that you feel you’re watching the sound unwind from their bodies."
    The Washington Post
  • "a beautiful, contemplative piece."
