Jessica Lang Dance Delights in Spirited Tony Bennett-Inspired Work
REVIEW by Kaitlin Wright, Voice of OC, October 1, 2018
Referenced works:


“The most compelling aspect of Lang's work is her visually rich use of the stage. Dancers, sets, props and the often striking use of lighting (primarily designed by the notable Nicole Pearce) are all paint in the metaphor of the performance space as Lang's blank canvas. Everything works together to form a seamless whole. The Jessica Lang Dance repertoire highlights a company that balances the crispness of ballet with the athleticism and innovative movement of contemporary dance.”
