by David Mead -- October 19, 2006, National Theatre, Taipei, Taiwan

by Quinn Batson -- October 14-15, 2006, Merce Cunningham Dance Studio, NYC
Darcy Naganuma and Lara Luzim produced a smorgasbord of dance and choreography at Cunningham Studio and called it “Cut Loose”, a consistently tasty evening of dance at this often inconsistent venue. It was easy to miss that the evening included works by 6 different choreographers because the flavors mixed well.
