Dance Fever
With Hot September Flurries, a corps of Austin choreographers burn up the Blue all month long
Arts Story  September 16, 2005, by Robert Faires
"...This year the program involves a baker's dozen of dance makers and shows on 13 of the 30 days. Still, it's an intriguing mix of creators, with relative newcomers such as Lindsey Taylor and Kayo Tsujimoto alongside local arts stalwarts Toni Bravo and Kathy Dunn Hamrick; Bartel, whose most recent project, KillSport, was based on the cult film Death Race 2000, alongside Allison Orr, whose most recent project, The King and I, was a choreographic meditation on Elvis; plus Caroline Sutton Clark (Wicked Cricket Dance Theatre), Lauren Tietz (Improvisation Movement Project), Ray Eliot Schwartz (Elsewhere Dance Theater), Amy Cone, Sharon Marroquin, and Cherami Steadman...."

Pushing Boundaries
Eight new dances that spoke engagingly to the place individuals have in groups
Arts Review  December 12, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...Even Sharon Marroquin's "Garden," while a solo, seemed to speak to the individual-in-a-group theme I kept seeing. In it, a Chaplinesque/Keaton-ish Marroquin became infatuated with a small mound of dirt, and her deadpan delight in sinking her toes into the soil, touching it, watering it, and cultivating from it a flower communicated the place each of us has among earth's living things and what we can do to nurture life around us..."

In Ballet East Dance Theatre's Tribal, the company's original dances made you aware of the people around you and your connections to them
Arts Review  April 2, 2004, by Robert Faires
"...Melissa Villarreal's "Ring of Destiny," with its Middle Eastern costumes and music, imbued the marriage rite with a mythic splendor, while Marlo Wanielista-Berg's "Watch What You Wish For" was a whimsical vignette of four girls fighting over a parasol that, on a windy day, ultimately proves more trouble than it's worth. Eric Midgley's "Endless River" was almost epic, filling the stage with 10 dancers to convey a sense of nature's tribes in sweeping, sometimes thunderous collective movement, while Sharon Marroquin's "Endangered Species" held a hushed focus on four dancers' individual gestures – watching one's fingers wiggle, pivoting one's hand to suggest a bird cocking its head, peering through a cage – creating an enigmatic and intimate beauty..."

Oh Mother
'Oh Mother' is refreshingly eclectic in its celebration of its theme, its dances as individual as the children of the women who dance so eloquently in it
Arts Review  February 17, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...We feel the weight of that belly, too, how it feels to lug all that developing life around, in Caroline Sutton Clark's "Sextet for Twelve," in which a half-dozen dancers in the family way balance mythic images of motherhood – a stately promenade with each dancer carrying a plastic bag filled with water and a goldfish swimming in it – with pregnancy at its most mundane: trying to sleep with that great ball around your middle, walking on legs that feel weighted, perpetually being called to the bathroom. We feel the pressure brought to bear on mothers with careers in Sutton Clark's "Trio From Wee Beasties," wherein Sharon Marroquin is buffeted and bounced between Amanda Evans and Megan Knotz, who accuse her of not giving enough to her child or her art..."
