Performing Arts: Dance Jessica Lang
REVIEW by Deidre Towers, Eye on the Arts, June 18, 2016
Referenced works:


“Jessica Lang offers a link to our modern dance pioneers with their spiritual ethos and, simultaneously, to the architects of classical ballet. No wonder she has been commissioned so many times; she leaves you feeling optimistic about the future of American dance, moved by her themes, her inspired collaborators and marvelous dancers--her clarity is infectious.”
