"Tesseracts of Time" Explores Time and Space Through Dance and Architecture
REVIEW by Alexandra Villarreal, Huffington Post, November 10, 2015
Referenced work:


“"Tesseracts of Time", Jessica Lang Dance's newest piece, dives into the intricacies of time and space by juxtaposing architecture and dance for reflections on stagnancy and movement, permanence and ephemerality...You saw the reconciliation of dance and architecture, two art forms that seem to contradict in time and space. Dance disappears in a split second. Architecture is supposed to last forever. Dance travels. Architecture stays in place. Yet here, both lasted and disappeared, traveled and stayed still. They were one in the same, all bodies in the ether, constructing something to create reality.”
