From Thea Singer in the Boston Globe:
Farther along in the journey, seeing ‘Relationship’ anew
Choreographer Deborah Abel - part yogic philosopher, part early modern dance devotee - has all the best intentions.
In her evening-length work “The Perfect Relationship,” a concert of six duets ... she and partner Jeffrey Polston convincingly slip under and over and through each other’s various body parts, now smooth as corn silk, now all jagged puzzle pieces, struggling to connect or to snap loose. But for a dance that’s intended as a journey, you pass too much of the same scenery from point A to point B.
