Works + Press > Meadow


"Choreographer Dawn Springer’s Meadow was set against the theater’s smashing view from on high of our city at night. Roskopf and Laurenzi were the sole performers in this challenging dance. Springer’s work is formal and fascinating. You’re caught by the ever-shifting movements, by the growing familiarity of patterns. Your mind races to possible meanings, and you lose track of time. Russell’s score was diffuse, dreamlike and ultimately heavenly. All that a body can do, it seems, can be done in this meadow, this city, beneath an unseen sky. What does life hold for two humans?"
