SF Weekly's Rachel Howard writes, "Summerfest/dance has a reputation for being a hit-or-miss affair, whether you're evaluating it from program to program or season to season. With three weeks of works -- 75 percent of them premieres -- by more than 25 mostly emerging choreographers, how could it be otherwise? And yet while the festival's basic formula hasn't shifted over the last nine years, the balance of hits and misses, recently, has."<P><BR> <A HREF="http://www.sfweekly.com/issues/2000-07-12/dance.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.sfweekly.com/issues/2000-07-12/dance.html</A>

Image <BR>Stephen Pelton,<BR>who premiered a new work at Summerfest<P><BR>Octavia Roca is enjoying himself at Summerfest. He writes in the SF Chronicle, "The dance doldrums of summer were banished Thursday night at the opening of Summerfest in Fort Mason's Cowell Theater. The first of six different programs of new works by 25 Bay Area choreographers was a mixed bag. But when the rewards came, they were rich."<P> <A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2000/07/15/DD83596.DTL" TARGET=_blank>http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2000/07/15/DD83596.DTL</A>

The SF Examiner's Allan Ulrich, on the other hand, thought "Lea Wolf's 'Nine Valentines,' the indisputable hit of the first of this year's six Summerfest/Dance programs..." Ulrich continues, "There is a vision here - a search for affection in a mythic landscape - and Wolf animates it in a wholly professional manner."<P> <A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/examiner/archive/2000/07/15/STYLE10582.dtl" TARGET=_blank>http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/examiner/archive/2000/07/15/STYLE10582.dtl</A>

My favorite Bay Area dance critic, Rita Feliciano, cites Summerfest as evidence that dance in the Bay Area is thriving:<P> <A HREF="http://www.sfbg.com/AandE/34/43/alive.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.sfbg.com/AandE/34/43/alive.html</A>

Rachel Howard of SF Weekly thinks Mark Foehringer's Rhapsodia begs a second viewing:<P> <A HREF="http://www.sfweekly.com/issues/2000-07-26/dance.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.sfweekly.com/issues/2000-07-26/dance.html</A>

Interestingly, Allan Ulrich thought Foehringer's "Dance project tests limits of good will" in his <A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/examiner/archive/2000/07/29/STYLE13522.dtl" TARGET=_blank>SF Examiner article</A>.<P><BR>

Image <BR>The Mark Foehringer Dance Project in "Rhapsodia"<P><BR>Rita Felciano thinks Mark Foehringer's "Rhapsodia" is "slick and only modestly intriguing" but thought it rare that the men more than held their own with the women.
