For a really great article about Austin McCormick and Comapny XIV read this great experiential piece by Karen Tortora-Lee about what she saw when watching the workshops to help other dancers learn the Compan Or better XIV way of dancing (http://companyxiv.com) earlier this week.
Even casual readers of The Happiest Medium know that when it comes to Company XIV and Austin McCormick I am reduced to a screaming fan-girl.

Sure, the show is sexy, shows a lot of skin, and has no problem exploring the more intimate moments of the relationship, but Rising Sun's inherent intelligence as an ensemble ensures that your skin is served up with a side of thoughtful, though-provoking drama which explores the title rather than exploits it.
When you read that the title of a play is as blatant as Stripper Lesbians you might be led to believe that what you are about to see is nothing more than a show which has women in various states of ...

Dianna Martin writes: Unfortunately the piece tries so hard to make a statement about the human condition and our lack of empathy for the opposite sex, that it gets in its own way.

Served with a side of audience discomfort, Elie’s solo show, Big Girls Don’t Cry (playing at The Red Room), is an insightful, if slightly off-putting insight into the psyche of the Modern Woman.

There are many gems scattered throughout the production that highlight the talents of the cast, and if they would focus more on using these as a method of storytelling, you would have a better way to marry fact and fiction.

Interesting show, that i think could be tightened up a little more and have a really deep impact on the audience.
