I'm moving Misa's post here:<P><BR><B>Getting Aquainted With Dad via Snippets of War</B><BR>Article in the NY Times By Jennifer Dunning<P>Tamar Rogoff never quite knew her beloved but distant father, Bernard Rogoff, a doctor who had been a medical officer in the Burma campaign during World War II. Seeking to understand her father better after his death 16 years ago, Ms. Rogoff explored the wartime life he chronicled in a diary and in passionate, funny letters he wrote to his wife. Alive in those letters, Rogoff remains otherwise largely elusive in "Daughter of a Pacifist Soldier," a haunting, poignant theater and dance piece. <P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/01/09/arts/dance/09ROGO.html" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><BR>

Deborah Jowitt writes in the Village Voice:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Like quests, Tamar Rogoff's rich and unusual pieces delve into other worlds that resonate with her own. For Daughter of a Pacifist Soldier (at La MaMa through January 20), she and her six performers spent eight months interviewing five veterans of three wars who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, bonding with them, and improvising on themes that arose.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0203/jowitt.php target=_blank>More</a>, in the third item of the linked article.

Claire's World: The Actress, the Painting and the Dance
by CLAUDIA LA ROCCO for the New York Times

Claire Danes stands in the middle of an empty studio, reading her lines. Her thin torso undulates. Wisps of blond hair stick to her cheeks. She radiates a fragile but fierce intensity.

This isn't a film audition, but a rehearsal for an hourlong dance solo, "Christina Olson: American Model," choreographed by Tamar Rogoff and based on Andrew Wyeth's well-known painting "Christina's World."

Finding Desire for Movement in Wyeth's 'Christina's World'
by JENNIFER DUNNING for the New York Times

Ms. Danes has the rare gift of stillness, and her soft-voiced recitation of brief passages from biographies of Christina Olson and Andrew Wyeth is almost as dynamic as her dancing in this evocation of the look and life of Olson, the woman depicted in Mr. Wyeth's most popular painting, "Christina's World."

A Star Dances
Choreography brings a painting to brave, awkward, empowered life
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

Any mystery as to why a movie actress as prominent as Danes would decide to perform a work by Tamar Rogoff, a downtown choreographer, ... Danes was a New York kid; like many, including my son and Ro-goff's daughter, she went to P.S. 3 and took Ellen Robbins's dance classes for children at Dance Theater Workshop. ... Her wish to venture back into dance, then, isn't completely startling.

Twin Stars Collide
Two old friends imagine a friendship that never happened
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice
published: February 5, 2007

In today's dances, performers often engage in fits of slash, jab, and twitch that could reflect urban angst or the electric shocks of a digitized world. Tamar Rogoff's worldview is more thoughtful. Like her wonderful 2002 Daughter of a Pacifist Soldier, her new Edith & Jenny makes use of media and postmodern devices like the cross-referencing of past and present, but the movement she creates reveals a range of feelings.
