Trading Soft-Edged Lyricism for Martial-Arts Movementmore...
by JENNIFER DUNNING for the New York Times
"Duck" built surely toward a nutty finale in a ballroom, after touching on a surprising range of situations, personalities and emotions, some of them decidedly childlike. But in general the dance was just its pure-movement self, with some stylish and oddly poignant interactions with piles of sneakers. Another duet, a stand-alone dance for Ms. Iguchi and Ms. Taoka, seemed to come from nowhere late in the hourlong piece and dulled its flow.
