Jessica Lang Dance at The Joyce Theater
REVIEW by Zahra Sadjadi, Theater is Easy, February 23, 2014
Referenced works:


“Innovative, emotional, and visually captivating compositions..."i.n.k.," inspired by the videos of Japanese artist Shinichi Maruyama, captures the slow motion images of ink and water colliding and suspended where the dancers and their shadows replicate, mimic, and collaborate with those gestures. In conjunction with the original score by composer Jakub Ciupinski which incorporates actual samples of water sounds, this piece was so utterly poignant and moving that I was surprised how captivated I could be by images, sounds, movements, and moments so abstract, simple, and
peaceful.”
