Concerto Six Twenty-Two (1986)

Concerto Six Twenty-Two

“Repeatedly, the new choreography produces new steps, new movement, new patterns, new twists on highly sophisticated formal structures — and all with a vibrantly alive human passion that emanates from the dancers at every moment. Why beat around the bush? The truth is that this is what dance is really about. “

— A. Kisselgoff, The New York Times, 4/9/86

Fandango (1989)

“Can only be called a choreographic sensation. It is an extraordinary love duet full of sexual tension. But on another level, the piece is also something very different; a formal exploration of new ways in dance partnering.”
