'Tesseracts': World premiere is vivid blend of dance, space
REVIEW by Laura Molzahn, Chicago Tribune, November 7, 2015
Referenced works:


“At the Harris, her gift for design - for a photographer's sense of light and shadow, texture and composition and dimension - was obvious throughout, aided by Nicole Pearce's powerful but never overpowering lighting. Crisp, evocative shapes, often caught and held in stillness by her superb dancers, define Lang's choreography, nailing images. Lavishly charged music gives these crystalline moments emotional color.”
