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..."

DAILY Arts  April 26, 2016, by Wayne Alan Brenner

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?..."

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..."
