"Shifting Earth", explores sudden changes, loss, illness, experiences that create vulnerability in our lives. These sudden shifts, optimistically force us to adapt and are conveyed, kinetically, through mercurial shifts in weight and movement.
Through, gesture, body language, projection of energy, breath and muscular effort, "The Body Becomes the Messenger" explores how the body informs our emotional, physical and spiritual lives.
The New York Times wrote "gorgeously fluid movement.vibrant, imaginative...with a rare feeling for stage space."
The Boston Globe wrote ''She is like a double helix in motion, constantly flipping perspective. She seems to reach out and coil inward at the same time, her body twisting and spiraling, arms curving forward and back with quick shifts of dynamics.
Dance Magazine said "Tempering strength with vulnerability, she can turn sharp edges into soft corners with sensuous fluidity."
The company's work has been chosen among the best of the year by The Boston Globe, The New York Times, The Boston Phoenix among others.
