Entering new realms with Jessica Lang Dance
REVIEW by Janine Parker, Boston Globe, July 6, 2017
Referenced works:


“A fascinating aspect of Lang's work is that...each work feels unique. Between the visually rich dancing and the often striking use of lighting and/or unusual props, we seem to enter new realms with each dance. Lang's hard-working, pleasing dancers perform with an easy, unaffected clarity.”
