Aura Fischbeck Dance – DUSK – San Francisco

★★★✰✰   DUSK had a lot going for it. First was the overall concept. DUSK challenges the viewer to not only acknowledge the idea of transformation, but to consider what lies beneath.

GERALDCASELDANCE – Cover Your Mouth When You Smile, Thirdperson, Fluster – San Francisco

★★★✰✰   Evaluating works in progress is a peculiar exercise. Without knowing what parts of a dance are complete or still conceptual, or where they fit within the context of a larger yet to be created piece a review is a guessing game.

Funsch Dance Experience – Le grand spectacle de l’effort et de l’artifice (premiere) – San Francisco

★★★★✰   The work reflects Funsch at her razor-sharp best: rigorous and searingly self-discilplined in design, grounded and emotionally present in performance.
