Dreams of Flight

"Dawn Springer's "Dreams of Flight" featured nine dancers moving in silence broken only by the sounds of their own footfalls. The silence became the magic as they moved in remarkable synchronicity with no discernible cues." Elaine Schmidt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinal

"The strongest piece on the bill was Dawn Springer’s Dreams of Flight. Performed completely in silence, it begins with Christal Wagner alone, moving with a gestural vocabulary that suggests soaring dreams and powerful concentration. Eventually, all nine Danceworks company members join her for a dazzling example of ensemble precision (an almost psychic way of initiating phrases) and simple, but beautiful composition. There is a mathematical rigor here, but poignant warmth as well: spirits fly even as bodies remain earthbound." Paul Kosidowski, Milwaukee Magazine
