Speaking of Dance
The difficulty of describing dance inspires choreographer Kathy Dunn Hamrick to create an ingenious 30-minute dance out of phrases from dance reviews.
Arts Story  April 25, 2003, by Sarah Hepola
"...Kathy Dunn Hamrick was reading a dance review when a phrase caught her eye: "multiple cuppings of dipped heads." Huh? She had seen the show, too, but the reviewer's description left her baffled. What was a cupping? How many cuppings were there? And did she somehow miss them all? She stood up in her office and began dancing out whatever came to mind -- "funny, bizarre images" -- trying to re-enact the vivid and peculiar phrase..."

Film Review  May 10, 1996, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The press, though chilly to the rote death-row storytelling of Last Dance, has generally been treating Stone's performance as one of the revelations of the decade. Review after review praises the movie's display of Stone's “range” and “skill” as an actress and her indisputable physical appeal that manages to transcend this character's lack of make-up and high couture..."

Paul Taylor Dance Company
Call them contemporary or modern, but Paul Taylor's dances are always masterful
Arts Story  March 27, 2009, by Andrew Long
"...During one section, Taylor stood silently on stage for several minutes without moving his body or even blinking his eyes. (Keep in mind that John Cage's infamous 4'33" debuted only five years earlier.) Responding in kind, Louis Horst's review consisted of 4 inches of blank white space, mentioning only Taylor and the theatre's name..."

A Day at The Races.... One Hour at the Mixed Arts Panel Review Session
Arts Story  May 27, 1999
"...Jim Bob McMillan, chair of the Mixed Arts panel, carries folding chairs into the meeting room in the Dove Springs Multipurpose Center, located a few miles east of I-35 off Stassney. Each year, the Parks and Recreation Department, which oversees the Cultural Contracts Program, picks a different venue for the review sessions; to the players, it must feel that each year sees them heading further and further afield...."

Arts Review  April 1, 2011, by Jonelle Seitz
"...A mixed dance program in which each work is textured and interesting in some way yet very different from the others makes for a difficult review. But the limitations and difficulties of exploring dance via ever-smaller blocks of text are for critics to contend with..."

Inventive direction and fun acting make a wonderful spectacle of Brecht's dark world
Arts Review  February 25, 2011, by Avimaan Syam
"...Halena Kays' relentlessly inventive direction really makes Threepenny a delight: I could fill the entire review with a list of the magical moments and props this show offers. The strong sense of world-building flows through some beautiful design and a well-knit, enjoyable ensemble, punctuated by Amanda Morish's sweet singing as Pirate Jenny and Alexis Scott's wonderful comedic timing as Jacob...."
