<B>JASMIN VARDIMON DANCE COMPANY</B> <BR>ROBIN HOWARD DANCE THEATRE AT THE PLACE LONDON <BR>BY NADINE MEISNER in The Independent <P><BR>JASMIN VARDIMON'S Ticklish has such a cracking start that it almost blasts you out of your seat. A strobe lights up a woman (Vardimon), startlingly pinned against a white panel and frozen in various dynamic, mid-air poses. At first it looks like a series of photos, until you realise that the figure is live, her joints supported by strategic pegs. Then the piece's title and credits come up; and the evening can only go downhill, which it duly does, rather steeply.<P><A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=011119004887&query=dance" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A>

Far more pleasure than pain
Kelly Apter in The Scotsman reviews Jasmin Vardimon and Scottish Dance Theatre

Jasmin Vardimon Dance Company - Ticklish ****
Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh

VARDIMON is one of those dancers you can’t take your eyes off. Like an inquisitive cat, she bends and stretches, climbs and crawls, contorting her incredible body into ever more complex positions. She does the same with her choreography.

In a sea of tired and stale moves, Vardimon is a lifebelt of fresh and previously untapped creativity. Her three dancers share her joy of movement, each pushing themselves to the limit in this intensely physical piece.

Supposedly a work about the teetering point between pleasure and annoyance, Ticklish falls a little short of its target. We search for clarity, but the narrative is obscured by Vardimon’s ever-changing surreality.

Quote:
In the long history of dance and music, the choreography on stage has traditionally reflected what has already been written in the score. But in The Dance Machine, a collaboration between choreographer Jasmine Vardimon and visual artist Guy Bar Amotz, it is the dancer who creates the music as she moves.

Review from The Guardian.

Quote:
Hospital can severely damage your health, according to choreographer Jasmin Vardimon. Her new work, Lullaby, is a darkly disturbing game of doctors and nurses in which she gets out the scalpel and slices away at people's relationships with illness.
