BWW Interview: WENDY OSSERMAN Celebrates 40 SeasonsBWW Interview: WENDY OSSERMAN Celebrates 40 Seasons
by Matt Hanson - Mar 31, 2016

Wendy Osserman spoke to BWW on the phone from New York. Osserman is a bright, youthful 74-year-old, reflecting on a life that exemplifies her peerless character as a fixture of downtown New York dance since the late '60s. Her light-hearted, joyful voice touched on themes ranging from her first memories dancing as a child in front of the mirror, to producing a dance festival on the Greek island of Paros while considering the current crisis of human movement in Greece. The Wendy Osserman Dance Company will perform two world premieres at the Theater for the New City from April 20-23, featuring her new solo work, 'Timed' alongside her classic, 'Udjat' inspired by ancient Egyptian motifs. With a comfortable modesty, she speaks to overcoming the challenges of being a woman in the dance world and of the irresistibility of her continuing aspirations as the leader of a company signature that she has fostered for the last four decades.

BWW Review: SOLEDAD BARRIO & NOCHE FLAMENCA Vivaciously Rumbled Astor PlaceBWW Review: SOLEDAD BARRIO & NOCHE FLAMENCA Vivaciously Rumbled Astor Place
by Marsha Volgyi - Mar 29, 2016

At Joe's Pub, located inside The Public Theater in the neighborhood of Astor Place, I dined at the cabaret on March 26, 2016. While in the venue's intimate setting, which included a fusion cuisine menu and a glass of Pinot Noir, I imagined that this would be the type of setting that flamenco in España (Spain) is performed. I was seated roughly forty feet from where I would see their feet. (more...)

Noche Flamenca's ANTIGONA Returning to New York in DecemberNoche Flamenca's ANTIGONA Returning to New York in December
by BWW News Desk - Oct 12, 2015

Following a critically acclaimed run this summer, Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca's Antigona will return to New York for a six week engagement, December 11-January 23. This visually arresting adaptation of Sophocles' Antigone, which originally opened on July 21, was declared a New York Times Critics' Pick by Laura Collins-Hughes, who wrote that "a haunting, distant classicism coexists with sweaty, unmediated corporeality in this dance drama." In The Village Voice, Miriam Felton-Dansky called it "raucously eloquent," while Apollinaire Scherr in the Financial Times wrote that Noche Flamenca "has created a powerful marriage of Greek tragedy and flamenco." The New Yorker's Joan Acocella declared: "Never, until I saw Santangelo's ensemble, their heels stamping, their arms cutting through the air, had I seen a chorus whose physical force could support the fate-heavy songs that Sophocles wrote for his plays."
