From Valerie Gladstone in the Boston Globe:

Choreographing a multimedia 'devil'
....
Scofield draws on everything that has formed her in the new piece. She likes ballet for its clarity, verticality, and discipline. She uses aspects of yoga for flexibility and modern dance technique for its fluidity. By combining these elements with her own directness and partiality to angular and jagged movements, she produces thrillingly dynamic and baroque work.

[I'm not sure if this belongs in ballet or modern/contemporary dance area...]

A confounding, memorable 'devil'
The Zoe Scofield/Juniper Shuey multimedia dance collaboration "the devil you know is better than the devil you don't" is one of those bewildering pieces that demands total engagement in the moment, but sends you out the door wondering "What was that?" all the way home. .... it is unapologetically confounding, yet insidiously memorable, like a crazy dream you just can't shake. At the center of it all, there's a furious little heart that pumps equal parts vitriol and grace.

A small correction to the review was published in the Globe: For the record

The review should have said that at the end of the dance, the confetti "resembles nothing so much as ashes."

Substrate - Zoe|Juniper at the ICA

[ Zoe Scofield ] and videographer/designer Juniper Shuey have been collaborating since 2004, and this piece integrated their five-member company with 10 Walnut Hill student dancers and an evocative mix of sound and visuals. Although their stated "devil within us" theme eluded me, I found the piece fascinating anyway.
