In the Boston Phoenix, Marcia Siegel writes about Prometheus Dance:

Quote:
Endgames
Prometheus’s Apokalypsis


Diane Arvanites-Noya and Tommy Neblett made Apokalypsis three years ago, before crisis had taken over the screens of our lives, but the hour-long dance-theater piece certainly complements the gloomy mood of contemporary America. Newly staged for eight members of Prometheus Dance, plus some 20 seniors and young dancers, the work spread out effectively into the cavernous Cyclorama space at the Boston Center for the Arts last weekend; it will be repeated there this Thursday through Sunday.

In the Boston Herald, Theordore Bale writes about the 15th anniversary of Prometheus Dance, and its upcoming performance:

Quote:
Prometheus marks 15th year
....
As Prometheus Dance prepares for its 15th Anniversary Gala Performance tomorrow night at the Copley Theatre in Boston, it's obvious the ensemble has succeeded. Co-Artistic Directors Tommy Neblett and Arvanites-Noya have produced a substantial, far-reaching repertory of solos, duets and large ensemble pieces. They've taken their company on numerous international tours, where their dances have met with much critical acclaim. Educational and outreach efforts have extended to public schools, nursing homes and prisons. Most impressive of all, the company has endured on an annual budget of less than $100,000, with substantial in-kind donations.

In the Boston Herald, Theodore Bale's review of the gala:

Quote:
Prometheus' anniversary show dazzles

To celebrate its 15th anniversary, Prometheus Dance offered a rousing and sophisticated gala performance Saturday night at the Copley Theatre. The program demonstrated that Co-Artistic Directors Diane Arvanites-Noya and Tommy Neblett have created a formidable dance repertory of which they can be truly proud, and which represents an extraordinary contribution to cultural life in Boston.

From Louise Kennedy of the Boston Globe:

Quote:
Dances are made of dreams at Prometheus

CAMBRIDGE -- Writhing tubes of translucent fabric, shimmering in turquoise and brown and gold, inch across the floor. A soldier tosses and twirls his rifle like a majorette’s baton. Couples pair up, part, run, pair off again. A woman sings.

It’s the stuff of dreams -- or, more precisely, of “Dreams,” a multimedia work by Prometheus Dance that has its premiere tonight at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center.

and from Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald:

Quote:
Troupe’s ‘Dreams’ become reality

In 1911, Sigmund Freud wrote, “Anyone who for some time applies himself to the investigation of dreams, and takes a special interest in them, usually dreams more during that period than at any other; he remembers his dreams more easily and more frequently.”

If Freud was right, then the members of Prometheus Dance must be dreaming nonstop these nights. The group’s newest evening-length work, simply titled “Dreams,” is a set of 25 short dances based on recent dreams of company members and co-artistic directors Tommy Neblett and Diane Arvanites-Noya. When it opens tonight at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, Prometheus’ loyal following will be either delighted or shocked, because both Neblett and Arvanites-Noya describe the work as “a radical departure.”

From Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe:

Quote:
Prometheus's 'Dreams' is a rich flight of fancy

....

Prometheus Dance's provocative new "Dreams," given its world premiere last night to a packed house at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, is rich in the kind of fantastical imagery that informs our most fanciful nighttime flights. Choreographed by company artistic directors Diane Arvanites-Noya and Tommy Neblett, the work mines the fertile world that unfolds each night as we sleep and is drawn in part from the actual dreams of company members. A multimedia collaboration involving dance, music, theatre, and video, it is set to an eclectic and colorful commissioned score by John Kusiak, who draws from a wide range of cultural influences and manages to make a synthesizer sound like a chamber orchestra.

From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald: Prometheus stages ballet inspired by Tourette’s
Quote:
Tonight at the Boston Center for the Arts, Cambridge-based Prometheus Dance premieres what is likely the first ballet inspired by Tourette’s syndrome. It’s called “Anadimioupyia,” a hefty term that co-artistic director Tommy Neblett explained is a Greek word meaning “resurrection through movement.”

As befits one of Boston’s most venerable modern-dance troupes, Prometheus Dance’s “Solace,” an evening of five premieres, embraced both the innocence of youth and the graceful wisdom of maturity

From Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe:
Quote:
Prometheus shines in ‘Full Moon,’ others
In Prometheus Dance’s new “Dievas Mannu / Full Moon,” snow falls and a pale light casts shadows of birch trees as hunters and hunted seem to intertwine in a mysterious nocturnal ritual. Initially, the seven dancers in white pants and skirted tunics evoke a herd of reindeer, prancing lightly, hands on head, fingers spread like antlers. With their quick shifts of focus, they call to mind animals in the wild, constantly alert to danger.

Prometheus’s spring revels

Diane Arvanites-Noya and Tommy Neblett’s new duet, premiered at Boston Conservatory during Prometheus Dance’s Memorial Day weekend performances, seemed to be a philosophical model for the other new works on the program. Eyes Inside, set to the third movement of the Beethoven String Quartet No. 16, was a chain of renewed interdependencies.

From Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe;
Quote:
Exploring clash of modernity and tradition
Shots ring out in the darkness, and for what feels like minutes, the theater thrums with the disconcerting sound of mortar fire and engine rumble. But the focus of Prometheus Dance’s powerful new “Devil’s Wedding” is not the soldiers battling in the heat and dust of some unholy war. It is the women caught in the crossfire....
