Has anyone heard...Susan Marshall won a MacArthur grant, nicknamed the "genius" grant? Can anyone confirm this or find anything about this in the press?

Jennifer Dunning writes in the NY Times:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The notion of spoofing and exploring the literary genre of the mystery novel has been the inspiration of occasional dances. Susan Marshall mines that territory in her new "One and Only You," performed last Thursday night at Symphony Space. The mixed results suggest why such spoofs are not more popular as choreographic subject matter.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/04/11/arts/dance/11MARS.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Click for More</B></A><BR>

Susan Marshall tiptoes to dance's edge

By SID SMITH
The Chicago Tribune

Her topics are by no means typical dance fodder. Susan Marshall's choreography embraces detective novelists, naked blow-up dolls, the end of the millennium and domestic claustrophobia, the last encapsuled in a piece provocatively titled "The Most Dangerous Room in the House."

Dance Center goes technopop with pair of Marshall offerings

By SID SMITH
The Chicago Tribune

She has, in other words, something to say as well as movement to show off. Indeed, the first, "Sleeping Beauty," is arguably as profound as the art of dance can get.

Marshall dancers move with beauty and emotion

By HEDY WEISS
The Chicago Sun-Times

She stands alone, repeatedly caving in on herself with contracted movements, her fashionably deconstructed, creamy jersey top suggesting both a ripped soul and a chic bandage.

Repetition supports, defines dance performance

By TOM STRINI
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The belly of a woman supine on a white table inflates, in a startling illusion of pregnancy, then recedes to six-pack abs. A flashing light draws a man to don the headset on its stand; he listens and speaks, inaudibly. An aloof woman dances in place, with gestures reminiscent of the Dancing Shiva. A couple perform speedy arm movements in unison above the woman on the table - is this a ritual? Surgery? Mechanical processing?

Enigmatic Fairy Tales With Uncertain Endings

By JACK ANDERSON
The New York Times

As a choreographer, Susan Marshall delights in emotional situations but rarely tells straightforward tales. She was once again dramatically oblique in "Sleeping Beauty" and "Other Stories," the New York premieres her troupe, Susan Marshall and Company, offered on Tuesday night in the Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

"Sleeping Beauty" has nothing to do with the Tchaikovsky ballet of that title and not much to do with the old fairy tale about the slumbering princess. There was a beautiful heroine, though, played by Kristen Hollinsworth, who was in a sense asleep. At the start, she was stretched out on the floor. But even when she stood, she never seemed completely awake to the life around her.

These are two stylish and mood-provoking works by a competent choreographer, not without wit, especially in "Other Stories," and certainly not without subtle but strong sexual images.

Clare Byrne Dance

By DEBORAH JOWITT
The Village Voice

Susan Marshall has always used repetition enthrallingly. Her dancers recycle actions and phrases that tear at your soul. Often it's like watching someone pluck out an eye over and over. By the end of one of her pieces, you can be deeply moved, exhausted, or drained. In two recent works, repetition seems to be on a rampage, out of control. I'm gripped, yet want the dances to stop.

Dancing as Fast, and as Tightly, as She Can
by TOBI TOBIAS for the New York Times

At least the rehearsal schedule called for finishing touches. It sometimes looks as if she is reinventing the dances from scratch, like a God with second thoughts.

Pushing the Clouds Away
by JACK ANDERSON for the New York Times

"Solo," the second section, featured Luke Miller. But he was not always alone as he scurried to electronic thuds by Jane Shaw. The bodies of other people occasionally emerged from the wings, and Mr. Miller desperately pushed them away as if they represented people or experiences he wished to forget. He even pushed aside the sculptural cloud, suggesting that it was a source of pain for him.

Original Virtue
Summer programs by two bold, skillful artists make surrealism look like a place we know
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

Organic is a useful but leaden word. It no more accounts for the beauties of Susan Marshall's choreography than it explains a luscious tomato. In a Marshall work, ideas and patterns, no matter how unusual, evoke natural behavior in all its complexity. The dancers, who contribute to the choreography, inhabit it fully. Passages of flingy, resilient movement look like the result of inner or environmental storms; performers repeating gestures many times in various ways seem to be trying to understand them.

One Act at a Time
Celebrating 20 years of making the ordinary extraordinary
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

The fact that the cast numbers only five — all superb performers — provides a tender continuity, like that of a family circus. It's possible to discern themes, such as the willfulness of objects, confinement, or enforced order.
