Yoko Higashino and Hiroaki Umeda, New York
by HILARY OSTLERE for the Financial Times

This Japanese pop culture piece [Yoko Higashino's ALARM!-Zero Hour Edition] has been compared with Pina Bausch's work. But Bausch has a more sophisticated theatricality. Hihashino's collage of charmless images, with its speeded-up film of jogging nudes, lacks what is necessary to make it engrossing, rather than the gross experience it is.

In contrast, Hiroaki Umeda's fascinating solo While Going to a Condition shows the skills of a an artist who can bring light, movement (admittedly quirky) and sound together satisfactorily.

Dance? Maybe. Dirty? Definitely.
by CLAUDIA LA ROCCO for the New York Times

There isn't actual sex, but only, Ms. Young said, because she felt it didn't serve the dramatic arc of the work, which unfolds in a 42-foot mobile home and features a cappella singing, monologues and improvisation.

Bodies in Space, Unclothed and Unairbrushed
by ROSLYN SULCAS for the New York Times

What "Michael" seems to be mostly about is the unending need for love and the trauma of betrayal. It is set in a high-end version of a trailer (the program reveals that Ms. Young likes to read Country Living), with yellow-flowered wallpaper, an ornate white sofa and a chandelier. Within its confines the naked Jana Panconesi, Renée Archibald, Liz Santoro and Tosha Tillman cavort madly and shout at one another, watched through a window by the luckless masturbator, Trenton Duerkson.

Flowing Flags, Film, Neon Lights and Nudes
by JOHN ROCKWELL for the New York Times

While Mr. Rambert has interests ranging into opera, dance, film (two were shown in the lobby, one about a carwash before the performance, one involving explicit sex afterward), poetry and installation art, he insists that he is a theater director, as the title of his company suggests. He was presented at Dance Theater Workshop as part of the French-supported Act French theater festival.

A Nude Duet With Twists, Anguish and Eroticism
by JOHN ROCKWELL for the New York Times

Mr. Wade has a curious background. Now 29, he has been a champion swimmer, a member of the rave scene in Portland, Me., a latecomer to dance, a loner in terms of technique, a student in Amsterdam, a go-go dancer in various New York clubs with dubious names, and a growing presence on the Brooklyn choreographic scene. Not a bad résumé for a bad-boy dancer.

'A Walk Between Two Worlds' Bridges East and West
by JENNIFER DUNNING for the New York Times

The best part of the hourlong piece, to atmospheric music by Danny Blume and Chris Castagno, is Mr. Koplowitz's video, shot in Hanoi and New York City. The images are powerful, for the most part. But the choreography, for six women and two men, is aimless and repetitive.
