Jessica Lang Dance at The Joyce Theater
REVIEW by Anne Carr, Center on the Aisle, June 16, 2016
Referenced works:


“A Lang piece is clear, yet understated. It is a meticulously crafted maze of choreographic devices. It is simple, yet powerful. The audience is at rest, but not disengaged; emotional, but not overwhelmed. Lang lays a path that shows us very clearly where we are, yet never makes us feel as if we are being spoon-fed. We are left to watch and enjoy - a true delight, and somewhat a rarity in contemporary dance nowadays.”
