I hope to get into the city and see Ellis at the Duke this week. I last saw her in "From the Horse's Mouth", at the Kaye in May.<P>I suspect that Ms. Scherr's article is accurate relative to gender gaps and the anquish female dancers live and feel. However it takes a few years before the young dancers realize it themselves. Let us all work to change things.

I'm working on my impressions as I believe the entire evening deserves a longer commentary than provided by Ms. Dunning. I wonder if the Voice will have a review....?

Jack Anderson writes in the NY Times:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The TriBeCa Performing Arts Center at Borough of Manhattan Community College has the admirable policy of inviting composers, directors, writers and dance troupes to be artists in residence for a year. During that time, they receive rehearsal space, a stipend, administrative support and opportunities to present public programs.<P>Two of this year's resident dance companies, the Stanley Love Performance Group and Ellis Wood/Wood Dance, appeared at the center last Saturday night. Each offered a long, sprawling work lasting almost an hour. And both pieces desperately needed trimming.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/03/23/arts/dance/23LOVE.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Click for More</B></A><BR>

A Feminist Encounter With the Gray-Flanneled of Wall Street
by JOHN ROCKWELL for the New York Times

The idea is to posit Woman as the free, soaring spirit against the dull conformity of men in their “gray-flanneled armor.” Never mind that the audience on the opposite sidewalk seemed to consist mostly of dance fans and puzzled tourists, and that most of the gray-suited crowd had their coats off and walked right on by.

Elemental Women
Bringing the timeless up to date
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice
published: November 28, 2006

This controlled volatility informs her engrossing Hurricane Flora: Inferno. Two of its four sections, "Air" and "Earth," were premiered at Dance Theater Workshop in 2004. Now she's added "Fire" and "Water." The five women who perform it (Loren Davidson, Amy Knauff, Cynthia Koppe, Candice Schnurr, and Kristine Willis) offer no simple visualizations of the four elements.
