"In I UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING BETTER we confront momentous, life-altering tempests. Super Storm Sandy engulfs us by way of blustering weather broadcasts reported by the meteorologist, Neumann, his voice breaking up and changing pitch as he’s slammed by nature and forced into a dance with his microphone. While atmospheric conditions attack, a hero/king also played by Neumann, is dying. This character is inspired by the choreographer’s father, the experimental-theater actor and one of the original founders of Mabou Mines, Frederick Neumann. Tonight we accompany this important man through his own personal storm, his final journey from the earth." Christine Jowers..

"While your typical NYC dance festival often tries to cram as many "excerpts" as possible into two hours, FLICfest gives choreographers the unique opportunity to pursue deeper investigations by producing a full-length work. On January 29, Zullo/RawMovement’s latest interactive exploration is set next to a provocative solo by blind dancer and choreographer Mana Hashimoto. These works both contrast and inform one another." Check out more of what +Theo Boguszewski  has to say on +The Dance Enthusiast

Check out my latest article on @TheDanceEnthusiast. It was super to talk to the filmmaker of "Mia, A Dancer's Journey" who coincidently is  daughter of this great 20th Century entrepreneurial ballerina.  Her story is #inspiring .

 It’s a #mustsee for all audiences and a triumph for Ms. Ramas, both as a daughter and a first time film maker.”

Robert Johnson, The Dance Enthusiast's, Master Writer 2014-15, shares his IMPRESSIONS OF The Martha Graham Dance Company's 2015 Season at The Joyce Theater. "Bolder and fabulously successful is the Lamentation Variations series... This ongoing project was conceived as a way to perpetuate Graham’s influence on modern dance without encumbering young artists with her technique. Most of the choreographers commissioned to create new works inspired by Graham’s Lamentation, the striking 1930 solo with the dancer encased in a tube of purple fabric, have not been Graham-schooled. They have their own aesthetics... The Lamentation Variations are cunning in their references and delightfully inventive."

"Leslie Kraus stole the show. Her attack, personality, and precision made me remember the rock n’ horizontal rolls of Louise Lecavalier in the Canadian company La La La Human Steps. She danced with such emotional rawness, that if it weren’t for the pauses, the “still frames” that punctuated the four duets presented, one might think she was improvising." by +Deirdre Towers on +The Dance Enthusiast

Read Deirdre Towers' IMPRESSION on The Dance Enthusiast. "Yet, the festival’s closing film "Desert Dancer" left indelible traces in my heart and mind. While the 1947 classic film "Red Shoes" pivots around a choice of a life devoted to dance or love, Richard Raymond’s brave dramatic feature set in 2009 makes the protagonist choose between dance or his country Iran, his home and his friends" #dance   #film   #NYC

Read +Erin Bomboy 's wonderful  piece on the film "Capturing Grace"  which speaks of the empowerment of Parkinson's sufferers through dancing.... "Dance works far more than physical wonders; it empowers emotionally. Cyndy, when discussing her experience with Parkinson’s, laments losing the ability to put on her best face as the disease reveals her vulnerabilities to the world. Yet, through dancing, she has learned to value herself more."
