Danceworks and Vegas a good fit

By TOM STRINI
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Whole generations of female modern dancers, in the 1960s and '70s, tried very hard not to look sexy or glamorous on stage. Lipstick and cleavage just weren't compatible with feminist-leftist politics.

Daughters of the 1980s and '90s, as a rule, aren't quite so doctrinaire. The women of Danceworks Performance Company are about to open a studio show called "Lucky 7," which borrows from the brassy Las Vegas style.

'Lucky' viewers treated to serious babes

By TOM STRINI
The Milwaukee Journal Sentine

What, exactly, is a Fabulous Babe?

Tilt the question one way, and it's utterly frivolous. Tilt it another, and it's a question on the minds of serious women. The seven women of Danceworks, led by choreographers Sarah Wilbur and Dani Kuepper, tilt it into a dizzying whirl in "Lucky 7," which premiered Friday at Studio 1661.

Danceworks to take up residence at Skylight's home

By TOM STRINI
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
August 24, 2004

The Skylight Opera Theatre owns and operates Broadway Theatre, and the Skylight and Danceworks are edging toward an ongoing partnership yet to be defined.

Danceworks, a company of nine women led by Sarah Wilbur, will skip its usual December show at its Studio 1661 and instead supply Kit-Kat girls for the Skylight's "Cabaret" in November and December.

Dances mix it up with mixed success

By TOM STRINI
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
August 27, 2004

Six choreographers put their names in a hat to determine who would make dances for whom. The result is called "Mixed Six," and the results are indeed mixed.

The total success in the showcase, which opened Friday at Danceworks Studio 1661, is Sarah Wilbur's "Unlikely Event."

Life makes for compelling choreography
Danceworks' 'Wide Sky' is frank, real
by TOM STRINI for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Kuepper and Wilbur stir life and art into a sweet cocktail. The Elizabeth Matz we meet on the screen shows up on the stage, along with an ensemble of 50-somethings. They look pretty darned good.

'Trap' dance falls flat; 'Con Brio' shines
by TOM STRINI for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

You know how kids form cylinders with their hands and put them over their eyes to pretend they're looking through binoculars? The dancers, especially the two men, in Lee-Wei Chao's new "Trap" do that a lot. They're hunting or searching for something; maybe the five women in the piece, who often pose as if they are grazing animals.

Danceworks is once again on a collective kick
by TOM STRINI for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

It's true that the company has often strayed from dance and staged everything from stand-up comedy to fake game shows.

But it's also true that the company's technical level has jumped in recent seasons.

Virtuoso dancing has become common on Danceworks concerts, especially since frequent guest choreographer Ben Munisteri started pushing in that direction in 2001.

Danceworks isn't playing safe with show
by TOM STRINI for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The second Wide Sky Project, instigated by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center of Sheboygan, probes a little deeper into life. The topic is the concept of risk. Like the previous Wide Sky effort, "Willing to Risk" involves many non-dancers and draws on a series of taped interviews.

Engaging motions drive energetic dancers
by ELAINE SCHMIDT, special to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The piece is all about motion. Divided into seven sections with titles such as "Acceleration," "Momentum" and "Revolution," it is performed without intermission. The result is an hour of inventive, sometimes elegant, sometimes funny, always engaging motion.

Danceworks mixing it up with variety show
by TOM STRINI for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Pianist Jamie Johns' math for cabaret is 80% entertainment and 20% "other." The latter category, according to Sarah Wilbur, includes "beauty, pain and anguish."

"We've tried to stick to Jamie's formula," Wilbur said of her upcoming "Mixed Six" show at the 100-seat Danceworks Studio Theater.
