From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald:

In ‘Nine Ways Out,’ some steppin’ to their own beat - as producers
.... the [Shared Choreographers’ Concert] takes place three times every year. And each time, there are two fledgling co-producers who get a lot of responsibility thrown at them all at once. When the program returns this weekend to the Complex under the title “Nine Ways Out,” dancers Dianne Walters of Roxbury and Melanie Smithers of Stoneham will be busy behind the scenes, a place they say is just as glamorous as the limelight.

Dancers unveil smooth ‘Moves’
The standard group repertory show, the most common format in the local dance scene, becomes something quite different in the eyes of curator Alissa Cardone. Friday night’s “Critical Moves” program at Green Street Studios had a coherent thread running through it. All the choreographers are young, and it’s safe to say they represent a new wave in contemporary dance.

In Green Street program, moments that strike deep
....
“Ones + Twos,” the weekend fund-raiser at Green Street Studios ... presented just five solos and two duets, some excerpts, some brief yet full-blown....
Yet if the program as a whole was somewhat thin, it raised important aesthetic questions and showed off the remarkable dancing talent that has sprung from within Green Street’s spare, resonant walls.
Chief among those questions: Where does the choreography end and the artistry of the dancer begin?

Teasers and tidbits
Bunraku at the Majestic; Marcus Schulkind at Green Street

....
Some stellar Boston dancers got together for two fundraising evenings of Marcus Schulkind’s choreography to benefit Green Street Studios. Schulkind, a mainstay of the Cambridge dance center, is revered as a teacher, but his choreography nowadays is seen mostly in solo and duet excerpts and wispy new studies.

Quote:
Disparate works mesh in a satisfying, moving show
.... Rick Fox’s video “Beautylife . . . and other stories” .... had nothing to do with dance but still managed to fit beautifully is a testament to the vision and aesthetic of the concert’s curator and producer, Daniel McCusker. The veteran dancer/choreographer believes all the program’s works share a common concern for “structure combined with the intuitive,” and hopes “THISTHAT” inaugurates a series of showcases bringing together kindred artistic spirits.

The curatorial eye - Daniel McCusker’s ‘tHisTHat’
Boston’s dance showcases have often been motley affairs — mature work rubbing shoulders with not-ready-for-prime-time explorations, dances made to the stopwatch and according to a deadline. Bring in a curator as seasoned as Daniel McCusker, however, and motley changes to melody.

Drama manqué - Leine & Roebana at the ICA, Contrapose at Green Street

....
The project of reviving dances by[Anna] Sokolow, who died in 2000, was one of several auspicious ideas for the new company Contrapose, which had its debut at Green Street Studios.

Starting a dance company in these economically stringent days is a bold step. Cambridge-based artistic director Courtney Peix assembled a repertory by varied choreographers in both ballet and modern-dance styles. Music served as a motivating element for all of them.

Where the chips fell - Marjorie Morgan, Karl Cronin, ....

....
Marjorie Morgan and Karl Cronin performed works by postmodern dance pioneer Deborah Hay. Boom Boom Boom and The Runner aren’t set dances but interpretations. In workshops with Hay (Morgan attended one in 2000, Cronin in 2007), dancers acquire a set of open-ended instructions they can carry out as they wish. There must be hundreds of ways to get from stage right to stage left in two minutes. Every solution is another dance, individualistic and unrepeatable.
