From the Boston Globe:<P><B>McCusker casts a 'WIDE' net<P>Choreographer combines dancers, chorus, musicians</B><P>By Karen Campbell, Globe Correspondent, 6/11/2001 <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>One of the most moving aspects of Daniel McCusker's choreography is that his dancers engender a community that seems to enfold the audience in its embrace. There is nothing literal or overt, no pretense, just an underlying acknowledgement that we are there and somehow involved in the process of a dance unfolding. And the dancers perform not as characters, but as themselves - it is McCusker's carefully shaped choreography that brings them into intersections with one another. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.boston.com/dailyglobe2/162/living/McCusker_casts_a_WIDE_net+.shtml" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR>

Cool---I took ballet class with McCusker for years in NY. The review doesn't say where he's based now...anybody know?

From the Boston Globe, Thea Singer reviews dances by Daniel McCusker, performed at the Dance Complex:

Quote:
McCusker spins stories ‘Recent and Revisited’


Daniel McCusker’s long-limbed geometrical dances fairly burst with heart. Coupled with the choreographer’s musical choices, particularly those for live piano (played by John Kramer), they can hover at the edge of tears. That’s because their rigorous structure, their edgy dynamics, and their idiosyncratic gestures permit them to show rather than tell their stories, as the best novelists do

From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald: Troupe has a hand in ‘Breadcrumbs’
Quote:
Daniel McCusker’s program this weekend at Green Street Studios in Cambridge is called “Breadcrumbs.” And just like Hansel and Gretel’s well-known foray into the forest, McCusker’s choreography can be traced back, bit by bit, all the way to its beginning.

From Thea Singer in the Boston Globe: Emotional power flows through their bodies
Quote:
A culture of humanism sweeps through the long-limbed geometrical abstractions of Daniel McCusker. The choreographer, who couples subtly evolving movement patterns with surprising, idiosyncratic gestures, has always had heart. But the pieces in his latest concert signal a balance shift: These dances deliver an emotional wallop, even before the architectural framework filters into focus.

From Debra Cash in the Boston Phoenix:
Quote:
Signals from the solar system - Daniel McCusker at Tufts...

Pluto may have been downgraded to a dwarf planet, but Jupiter is still respected for its size, its moons, and the regularity of its orbit. When local dancemaker Daniel McCusker titled his current movement project Jupiter, ... he says that he meant only that the dance would take the form of five distinct parts augmented by four “satellite dances,” all using and reusing the same movement language.
