Jessica Lang Dance Fuses Art Forms in Mesa
REVIEW by Jennifer Haaland, Mesa Performing Arts Examiner, November 21, 2014
Referenced works:


“Jessica Lang Dance is to movement what music is to sound. Following a residency and several
Arizona performances, the rising star company concluded its desert visit with a performance last
night at Mesa Arts Center...'Clean simplicity, nothing haphazard,' is Lang's stated goal. She seems to have achieved it through fusion. Yes, a fusion of ballet and modern dance. But even more, a fusion of movement to sound. She allows in original fashion the rest of us to watch as dance becomes visual music.”
