Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company’s Glacier
As an elegy to the ice, this dance aestheticized doom but left us plenty of edge
Arts Review  June 8, 2017, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Given the pensive direction that choreographer Kathy Dunn Hamrick's work has taken lately – the subtle resistance of last fall's The Four (3) Seasons, the driving inevitability of last May's More or Less – I expected a dance called Glacier to hurt. And then, opening night happened to fall on the same day the president announced his decision to pull the U.S..."

UT Department of Theatre & Dance's Enron
This production of Lucy Prebbles' play smartly recounts and reframes the corporate beast's rise and fall
Arts Review  March 1, 2018, by T. Lynn Mikeska
"...It is a story people really should know. The University of Texas Department of Theatre & Dance not only does a bang-up job of presenting Lucy Prebble's entertaining and historically accurate script, but further reframes and modernizes the play with a cast composed of actors whose gender identities are either female or nonbinary...."

Arts Story  October 31, 1997, by Stephanie Beauchamp
"...Sydney Dance Company Cross-disciplinary is the focus this fall in dance presentations at UT's Performing Arts Center. It doesn't seem quite right to call them just "dance" -- without the other artistic elements with which they're fused, they wouldn't, pardon the pun, have a leg to stand on..."

Breathe, Fall, Suspend
Kathy Dunn Hamrick explains what modern dance is and why she keeps making it
Arts Story  April 30, 2004, by Barry Pineo
"...Spring is a time for renewal, for fresh perspectives, for rebirth and rejuvenation, so it's appropriate that each spring Kathy Dunn Hamrick and the dancers in her company premiere a new piece. If you're a dance neophyte, like me, or just a plain couch potato, you might ask, "So what? Why should I make the effort to go out and try something new?"..."

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..."

Going gaga for sensation-based movement
Arts Story  March 16, 2012, by Jonelle Seitz
"...These directives are familiar to students of gaga, a "movement language" invented by Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin. A back injury was the impetus for Naharin's new way of approaching movement, which he developed over many years as a choreographer and director of Tel Aviv, Israel's Batsheva Dance Company, a post he has held since 1990..."

Review: Mark Morris Dance Group
'Mozart Dances' exhilarates with exuberant playfulness
DAILY Arts  September 27, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...If you could capture the essence of childhood play – the boundless energy; the unself-conscious immersion in pretending; the relentless inventiveness; the sheer delight in creativity – and channel it through an adult, you'd have … well, you'd have Mozart, wouldn't you? You'd also have the Mark Morris Dance Group in Mozart Dances...."

Tapestry Dance Company's In Your Shoes
The rhythm tap troupe explores homelessness with a common sense of the form's capacity for complexity, subtlety, and risk
Arts Review  October 8, 2015, by Jonelle Seitz
"...When I mention that I'm going to see a tap dance show, people do one of three things: tell me that they took tap as a kid, give me a blank "Oh," or flex their wrists at their sides and do a Shirley Temple impersonation. But Tapestry Dance Company Artistic Director Acia Gray isn't about presentational, Broadway-style tap; she's an international name in rhythm tap, which is less about the dimples and more about the percussion..."

Music Column  July 9, 2015, by Kevin Curtin

Ballet East Dance Company: Reclaiming the modern in a pomo world
Rodolfo Mendez wants us to remember that before there was postmodern, modern dance ruled
Arts Story  November 30, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...It may seem odd to imagine something "modern" being forgotten, but that looks to be what's happening in dance, according to Rodolfo Mendez. The artistic director of Ballet East Dance Company says he sees a generation of dancers growing up with little or no knowledge of modern dance, as it was developed in the early and mid-20th century by the likes of Doris Humphrey, Martha Graham, Paul Taylor, Merce Cunningham, Lester Horton, and José Limón..."

Gibney Dance Community Action Residency
Training dancers to help victims of abuse
Arts Story  November 4, 2011, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Pat Stone holds the theory that victims of domestic and sexual abuse tend to "self-select for the dance field, because they want to regain respect for the body and regain control over the body." Over her 30-odd years of teaching dance, she says she's encountered far too many women with histories of abuse. What these women may intuitively know is that expressive movement can help regain what abuse destroys: a feeling of control and a positive relationship with the body...."

Anuradha Naimpally and Purna Bajekal are of two generations, but they share one timeless tradition
Arts Story  March 29, 2013, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Wearing richly colored, bejeweled garments handmade in India, she stamped her feet in intricate rhythms and shaped her hands in exquisite gestures, bells and bracelets jingling softly. I marveled at her physical beauty and the combination of delicate precision and strength required by Bharata Natyam, the style of classical Indian dance that Naimpally has performed, taught, and promoted under her organization, Austin Dance India, for two decades...."

All Bodies Dance
The latest production from Johnson / Long Dance Company, I Stuck My Head in the Garden is a 65-minute topsy-turvy of boys and girls in all their confusing combinations and shows the troupe once again smashing the notion that dance belongs to the tall, the thin, and the flat-chested.
Arts Story  January 24, 2003, by Sarah Hepola
"...They stand there wearing girdles, those strapping devices designed to erase our lumps and bulges, the embarrassing humanness of our bodies. Three female and two male dancers, some in bras and some in undershirts, each of their bodies different, shorter or sturdier or slighter than the next..."

Arts Story  November 7, 1997, by Stephanie Beauchamp

Ballet Austin: Save the last dance for me
Four of the company's most gifted dancers are taking their leaves after this season's finale
Arts Story  May 9, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...A ballet dancer's career, like an athlete's, can be cruelly short. You put 10 or 15 years into the profession, and just when you've acquired the experience that will allow you to achieve new levels of creative expression, your body is no longer up to all the physical demands (and punishment) of the job..."

The Forest for the Trees
The Austin Arts Commission has never been a model of bureaucratic efficiency, but this year it seems to have become a big cliché in action, a body so focused on procedure and minutiae and the concerns of the moment that it can't see the forest for the trees. It's compounding the problems in Austin's profoundly flawed public arts funding system and demonstrating just how poorly that process serves not only the city's artists but all its citizens.
Arts Story  July 6, 2001, by Robert Faires
"...So it was when the Austin Arts Commission convened on Tuesday, May 30. The purpose of the meeting was simple: Deciding what to do about a new guideline in the city arts funding application that had inadvertently led Sharir + Bustamante Danceworks to be declared ineligible for a cultural contract..."

A ballerina inspires two choreographers in AFS Doc Nights offering
Screens Story  June 5, 2014, by Anne S. Lewis
"...A documentary, however, might well be the perfect medium for presenting the high bravura drama that was the life of Tanaquil Le Clercq (1929-2000), one of the great 20th century ballerinas. In Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq, filmmaker Nancy Buirski profiles Tanny, as she was affectionately called by those who knew her, the Paris-born dancer whose professional and personal trajectory soared early, before plummeting tragically and settling, finally, into the bittersweet...."

One theatre ensemble just can't quit that miss of myth, Psyche
Arts Story  June 25, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...A small band of students in the University of Texas Department of Theatre & Dance must have something of that same deep affection for Psyche herself, or at least for her timeless tale. They've given over much of the last three years to crafting an original adaptation of her myth and bringing it to the stage not once, not twice, but three times..."

Home for Heroes (and Others)
Transforming the storefront at 617 Congress into The Hideout, a multilevel arts venue, has been a learning process for proprietors Shana Merlin and Sean Hill. But after $250,000 of investment, the developer's dance of securing permits, and many hours of hard labor, they have created one of Austin's most user-friendly theatre spaces.

"...Their transformation of 617 Congress into a multilevel performance venue has been, they will gladly volunteer, a learning process.

But many of these Trump folks, I’d wager, have never been to a Juneteenth BBQ east of I-35; a Kwanzaa program at the public library; a Diwali banquet with Pakistani students; a Sunday afternoon Czech polka dance with the family; or a Dia de los Muertos parade on S..."

DAILY Music  September 1, 2017, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Seven consecutive songs off Some Girls make their respective studio versions sound like demos. As heathen as Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out still spins from the Let It Bleed tour, which in 1969 redefined North American arena production, Some Girls: Live in Texas ’78 bests it with an altogether more lethal axe duel and whether fast (“Shattered,” “Respectable”) or slow dance (the Temptations’ “Just My Imagination,” “Far Away Eyes”), the band skins alive all tracks rhythmically.
