St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery is a truly magical as well as historical space, and it was a pleasure to perform The Lemonade Variations at DraftWork at Danspace Project last Saturday, February 25th.

Choreographer Sally Bowden, who had seen the trio excerpt at Judson in November 2016, e-mailed me: “I thought your piece went very well and looked very good. I was surprised to find four dancers in it, but it seemed to work well that way. I thought the four of you were clearly individuals and, at the same time, cohesive.”

Other feedback included my Japanese-American niece seeing Kabuki gestures; a friend enjoying the humor; and a chi kung student writing that she appreciated “the opportunity to experience a compelling piece of work. The unity of space, music, and sculptured movement was fascinating.”
