From the Los Angeles Times:<P><B>In 'Future,' Curran's Troupe Takes an Original Step</B><P>By LEWIS SEGAL, Times Dance Critic<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Irish music blares from loudspeakers at the Alex Theatre and suddenly the star dancer-choreographer of this Sunday performance appears--one arm bent with fist clenched, the other extended out and up in the signature, heroic "Lord of the Dance" stance. <BR> But because this particular dancer-choreographer is the deliberately antiheroic Sean Curran, a man who'll pause amid a flurry of steps to pant like a dog, his grandiose Michael Flatley pose gets laughs--and even more later in the same piece when he repeats it to attract Heather Waldon-Arnold, who remains unimpressed.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.calendarlive.com/top/1,1419,L-LATimes-Search-X!ArticleDetail-45306,00.html?search_area=Blended&channel=Search&search_text=%22Dance+Review%22" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A> <BR>

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Luck of Irish helps keep choreographer in step<P>JORDAN LEVIN, Miami Herald<P>Choreographer Seán Curran keeps finding his experiences don't quite fit his ambitions.<BR>He came to New York with dreams ``to be Ben Vereen,'' but ended up in one of the 1980s most celebrated experimental troupes, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. He struggled to make purely formal dances, but his often painful personal history keeps sneaking in, so that emotion often trumps abstraction.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.miami.com/herald/content/features/critics/dance/digdocs/009698.htm target=_blank>More</a>

Jordan Levin writes in the Miami Herald:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Choreographer Seán Curran showed two captivating sides when his Seán Curran Company performed at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts last Saturday night: a gift for formal, beautiful craftsmanship and a playful, affectionate humanism.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.miami.com/herald/content/features/critics/dance/digdocs/054243.htm target=_blank><B>More</B></a>, in the second item of the linked page<p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited January 31, 2002).]
