2013 Review: The Year in Dance
REVIEW by Margaret Putnam, Theater Jones, December 26, 2013
Referenced works:


“Many choreographers incorporate visual effects with dance, but perhaps no one does it with such clever effect as artistic director and choreographer Jessica Lang. Sheets of silk pool on the floor to make a barrier between lovers in Among the Stars; a grid in Lines Cubed separates dancers while long rolls of paper enclose others; and most dramatically, in i.n.k., a backdrop of black ink eddies and swirls in the background, as dancers on the ground either mirror or defy the turbulence. ”
