“The piece was over far too soon but was good to the last drop.”
“a striking dance told in shadow and silhouette.”
“This piece was so utterly poignant and moving that I was surprised how captivated I could be by images, sounds, movements, and moments so abstract, simple, and peaceful.”
“Billed as splashes of ink and water, the sometimes humorous and consistently quirky "i.n.k." is a seamless interaction of dancers and video”
“The stark black-and-whiteness of the visual design gives the work a clean, modern look.”
“a Diaghilevian union of music, art and dance.”
