 "The question that has been asked and continues to be asked every five or ten years: “Where are the black swans?” You know, that question. Diversity in ballet? Dance Theatre is important. Even now in 2014, Dance Theatre is largely the only  predominately African-American, truly multi-racial, multi-national ballet company in the country and in the world." Keith Saunders, Ballet Master, Dance Theatre of Harlem

"They work symbiotically. Roderick Murray ( Bartosik's husband and lighting collaborator) guides her through space with his one-of-a-kind contraptions as she squirms out of a tangle of cords and boldly runs through the pitch black space. It’s a murky game of cat and mouse."

Fiona Shaw and Hay-Gordon, who joins her as an accompanying dancer, work together beautifully to bring the poem vibrantly to life. The text becomes not only accessible, it becomes visible, imprinting itself into visceral memory as if we have lived the experience ourselves..." by +Ann Moradian for +The Dance Enthusiast
