Jessica Lang's vision is far-reaching in company's program at Irvine Barclay Theatre
REVIEW by Laura Bleiberg, Los Angeles Times, February 22, 2016
Referenced works:


“New York choreographer Jessica Lang has a knack for conceiving a complete universe in each dance- distinctive in its look and mood, sound and atmosphere...Lang's visual sense is remarkable, and it has come to characterize her aesthetic. But that reputation is too limiting, as her Jessica Lang Dance company proved Friday night at the Irvine Barclay Theatre.”
