Jennifer Sherburn's Riverside
With her new site-specific dance Riverside, choreographer Jennifer Sherburn says, "Come on in, the water's fine!"
Arts Story  September 8, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...That's the text that Jennifer Sherburn sent to Peter Van Zandt, introducing herself and the idea of using his backyard swimming pool at his Tarrytown home for the site of Riverside, a new movement piece she was developing that would be rooted in the relationships people have with those large waterways that wind through countrysides and often, as with Austin, the heart of a city. "Over the last couple of years, I've been getting to know some special people throughout Central Texas and learning a little more about the history here, from Comanches to cedar choppers to folks who live here today," Sherburn says..."

"...Maybe you remember when Austin’s Jennifer Sherburn did that incredible thing with a troupe of dancers and a cadre of excellent chefs over a series of nights at an equestrian dressage ranch out in the Texas Hill Country? You’d remember it because you were there, or because you read this segmented report of the action...."

ARENA: Dressage to Impress
A starry & enchanted night of human performance in the Hill Country
DAILY Arts  April 26, 2016, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...1. Yes, Austin’s Jennifer Sherburn seems to have turned human beings into horses, but rest assured that she hasn’t done so in any literal, genetic-engineering sort of fashion, so, please, put those torches and pitchforks away...."

Fast, Cheap, and in Control
Cost-of-living increases are making local artists do more with less
Arts Story  February 2, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...OK, class, here's a pretty basic equation: Rapidly escalating rents plus sharp increases in the costs of living and of making art plus decrease in adequate spaces for showing that art equals ...? Logic would suggest a reduction in the number of arts events. I mean, math, right? So, then, with resources for artists in Austin shrinking as rents are skyrocketing and venues are closing, how do you explain Jennifer Sherburn's 11:11, her project to premiere 11 dances in 11 months? Or the monthly programs on offer this season from the Rude Mechs and Local Opera, Local Artists? Or Revel Unclassified, a series of 22 concerts presented in as many weeks?..."

Who Gives a Damn About Big Range Austin?

Arts Story  June 24, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner

And this year we've got Jennifer Sherburn, who's very inventive – she has this big, huge set she's working on..."

The Moontower's Glow
Art Davis' new play The Moontower's Glow is a spiritual cousin to both The Rocky Horror Show and You Can't Take It With You, focusing on a houseful of eccentrics who have rejected the normalcy of society to live their dreams, no matter how ludicrous they may appear to the rest of the world.
Arts Review  December 21, 2001, by Robert Faires
"...They roll lazily along on the music, smoothly vocalized by Jan Evans to Davis' plummy trumpet and both their humming acoustic guitars; the sound is like the water flowing slowly over Longhorn Dam in one of the songs. And in the low, warm light provided by Jennifer Rogers, the movements of David Yeakle's wistful Petrushka and Jennifer Sherburn and Jennifer Harlow's playful Firebirds have the languor and grace of an underwater ballet..."

Uncommon combinations – dance with horses, music with robots, drama with a Tesla coil – made the year unforgettable
Arts Story  December 29, 2016, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...1) JENNIFER SHERBURN IN GENERAL, BUT ESPECIALLY ARENA A sudden marvel on the dance scene this year, whether performing, choreographing, producing, or joining forces with Natalie George Productions to create a new site-specific show each month for 11 months. But Arena, Sherburn's inaugural and horsey Hill Country spectacle, remains the most monumentally impressive...."

"...10) RIVERSIDE (Jennifer Sherburn) The prelude to this choreographer's 11 dances in 11 months was a bit of backyard enchantment in Tarrytown, with dancers as naiads cavorting around and in a swimming pool. HONORABLE MENTIONS..."

Seven Wonders of the World (Plus One)
The Tongue and Groove Theatre gang have some serious fun with the disconnect between dreaming and waking life in their world premiere production of Seven Wonders of the World (Plus One), a 1940s-era suite of songs linked by spoken text, follows a dreamer across time and space to various landmarks of both the ancient world and the modern U.S.
Arts Review  March 22, 2002, by Robert Faires
"...The company provides other pleasures along the way: Anne-Marie Gordon's oversized pastel postcards on the stage floor and walls; Jennifer Sherburn's playful choreography; Peter Sukovaty's underlighting, casting big, dreamy shadows across the wall; beefy Mick D'Arcy as Cupid and lean Taylor Maddux as the Pharaoh's cruel slavedriver; Sükryie Yüksel and Star Costumes' colorful outfits, from Egyptian maidens to the Empire State Building; Mark Stewart's sweetly oblivious dreamer -- the only one who doesn't seem to know he's in a show...."
