Christine Temin, on two modern dance concerts in Cambridge:

Choreographers step up with two Cambridge concerts
By Christine Temin, Globe Staff, 11/17/2002
Two events this weekend bode well for the future of Boston's fragile modern-dance scene.
The Dance Complex in Cambridge's Central Square, an erstwhile Odd Fellows Hall that is now home to some (occasionally) odd dance, holds a fund-raiser for itself in the form of its 11th-anniversary faculty concert. ....

The final program on the [Green Street Studios' Emerging Artists] fall series is this weekend, when Meghan McLyman and Dancers present "Moving, a modern dance concert."

More on both....

Following his comments on a Morgan/Plesky performance, Theodore Bale describes an upcoming fundraiser for the Dance Complex:

Quote:

In the Boston Globe, Thea Singer describes a fund raiser performance:

Quote:
Versatility pays off at Green Street benefit

Observing a fund-raising concert can be a kind of bipolar experience. If the beneficiaries are pulled onstage, the contributions can range from the amateur to the professional. And the eclecticism of the mix may leave the audience shifting emotional and kinesthetic gears with all the subtlety of a Mack truck.

The Green Street Studios' third annual February Fundraiser had such an effect, which was not at all a bad thing....[range of works described] Together the works showed Green Street, one of the few independent dance schools/performing spaces left in the city, to embrace a remarkable versatility of dance styles - and to count among its faculty choreographers capable of producing first-rate material.

Though mostly about Susan Seidman, there are some comments at the end of this article about works by Susan Barnard and Stefani Reitter, performed at the Greent St Studios this weekend.

Quote:
Seidman’s ‘Body Languages’ tells beautiful stories

By Karen Campbell, Globe Correspondent, 10/20/2003

CAMBRIDGE -- Choreographer Susan Seidman knows how to tell a story without giving it all away. The highlight of her “Body Languages” concerts over the weekend at Green Street Studios, which also featured dances by Susan Barnard and Stefani Reitter, was a work that used as its springboard her mother’s youthful reminiscences, playing lightly off the text without mimicking every narrative event.

From Thea Singer in the Boston Globe:

Quote:
Variety spices up dancers’ ‘Red’ line

There’s an air of the vaudevillian to a shared choreographers’ concert, no matter how polished the contents. Friday night’s “Red Cross Line” was no exception. The show -- a compendium of nine dances by 11 choreographers (complemented by a performance installation in a closet off the lobby) -- comprised styles ranging from the dramatically modern to the verbally comedic to the ethnically informed. To say that the seismic shifts kept the audience jumping is to put it mildly.

Harvard-trained choreographer, 24, finds balance in debut

....
[Ryuji] Yamaguchi’s intelligent, often self-referential dances will be on display in a show called “Sprout” tonight and tomorrow as part of Green Street Studios’ Emerging Artist Series, his professional debut in the United States.

The six pieces, many of which were choreographed while Yamaguchi was a student at Harvard (he graduated in June), were inspired by sources as varied as the plight of Japanese nursemaids from the 1600s, sandbox therapy, and Isao Takahata’s animated film “Grave of the Fireflies.”

Yamaguchi pins wrestling to choreography

Yamaguchi presents his first full program, “Sprout,” this weekend at Green Street Studios under the auspices of both the LEF Foundation and Green Street’s Emerging Artist Grant program. Though few in this area have seen much of his choreography, he is well-known as a dancer, having performed with such choreographers as Brenda Divelbliss, Jodi Leigh Allen, Gianni DiMarco, Derrick Sellars, Liz Santoro, Kraig Patterson and Mark Morris.

Donovan's dances are marvels of structure

Alone on stage with no props and wearing a simple black costume, Kelley Donovan carves through space with striking determination. It’s a baffling dance, but one thing is certain - this woman has a lot of talent.

From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald: First 13 years a piece of cake for Dance Complex
Quote:
....
This weekend the Cambridge organization, based at 536 Massachusetts Ave.,presents a group concert aptly titled “Baker’s Dozen” in celebration of its 13th anniversary. The dances on the program run the gamut from ballet to tango to hip-hop, but the common denominator for all is the number 13.

In the Boston Phoenix, Marcia Siegel reviews a recent performance by Marcus Schulkind: Ones and all - Marcus Schulkind at Green Street
Quote:
Marcus Schulkind’s concerts at Green Street Studios last weekend comprised eight solo dances and lasted about an hour. The evening was satisfying in a way that eludes discussion. Once you note that the room was full of terrific dancers, luscious movement, thoughtful choreography, and real music, you just want to go away by yourself and savor it all.
and Iris Fanger previews an upcoming performance by Lorraine Chapman: In transition - Lorraine Chapman at Green Street Studios
Quote:
[Lorraine Chapman's] embarked on a career as a choreographer, garnering commissions from other troupes and making works for the recently incorporated Lorraine Chapman: The Company, which will be performing at Green Street this weekend.

In the Boston Globe, Karen Campbell interviews Lorraine Chapman: Spinning off from ballet, choreographer makes her move
Quote:
.... This weekend, Chapman is producing and performing in her own concert, an ambitious affair featuring two new works (one still incomplete as of late last week) and excerpts from a new staging of Bach’s “Passion According to St. John,” a work in progress created with the Vox Consort, which will perform live. There’s more. ....

Team works
Fico Balet, Kinodance, and Elaine Summers

Two long duets at Green Street Studios last weekend went in different directions on the sliding scale that determines how many ideas a dance can hold. In the case of Kinodance’s Secret Streams, very few; Fico Balet’s Confi-Dance drew from what seemed like an inexhaustible supply. Both pieces applied contemporary spicing to older performance-making strategies. The results were totally different from each other, but both pieces left the audience room for thinking and dreaming.

Quote:
A spirited fusion of song and dance
When music and dance feed off each other in the immediacy of the moment, there can be an electric artistic synergy. With “The Essential Dancesongs” last weekend, the choreographers of the Dance Complex faculty and the eclectic quartet Birdsongs of the Mesozoic held their second annual collaboration, and the Sunday night concert was an engaging affair fueled by high spirits. Even though the dances were choreographed to preexisting tunes, the exchange of energy was palpable.
