BWW Review: DREAMLAND Fails to Find Its Footing at NoHo Arts Center

BWW Review: JANE COMFORT Dances Tales of The City
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jun 19, 2016

A man enters the space and walks the perimeter of The Kitchen's vast stage. Soon the entire arena will be filled with seven bodies locomoting with the purposeful gait of New Yorkers. Patterns form, collisions are narrowly missed, and somehow though it is only walking, we are rapt with anticipation. Anyone who has ever been in a modern dance class has seen this before: walking patterns are nothing new to dance. Very little of what occurs in Jane Comfort's 'You are Here' strikes one as groundbreaking. If anything, the piece is a revisit to the 'Tales of the City' concept that so many choreographers and film-makers enjoy exploring. Strangers in the city meet and are repulsed by each but sometimes they connect and talk. What kept this fresh despite its familiarity at June 16th's performance was the dynamic force exuded by the performers. (more...)
