Jessica Lang Dance: Classically modern
REVIEW by Nim Wunnan, Oregon ArtsWatch, March 22, 2018
Referenced works:


“The gasps from the audience came at moments when we had been following the structures the whole company was negotiating, only to see them dissolve into unexpected, fluid acrobatics before moving on to the next formation. To me this is a sign of a choreographer who really knows her medium.”
