"One special moment was when Joan Holly Padeo's light breathy voice sang [Patsy Cline's] 'Crazy,' so moving, so unpretentious."

"[Joan's] very descriptive telling of Emmett Till's young battered face while lying in an open casket is especially unsettling. The choreography is strong and the movement rigorous."

"I always know when a dance is good when I look at my notes to find that I stopped writing. [Fotos Antiguas] caused that response...[it] felt ageless."

"This is a piece that I didn't know I needed until I saw it...nothing short of breathtaking."
