<B>Munisteri troupe unveils new piece at Byrdcliffe Saturday</B><BR>By Nicole Edwards for The Poughkeepsie Journal (always nice to have something from the US town with my fav name)<P> <BR>Members of Munisteri's troupe perform the piece "Duke Live." <BR>Ben Munisteri has seen the days of having fun while performing dance come and go. <BR>His passion for the art form remains, but nowadays it's creating dance, not performing it, that's his focus. The 37-year-old founder of the Ben Munisteri Dance Projects and a founding member of the Doug Elkins Dance Company stopped a 14-year dance career about a year ago. <P>''It was good for a while,'' Munisteri said from his New York City office. ''It was great. I was dancing and then it was hard.'' <P>He's watched a six-foot-tall frame he typically maintained below 150 pounds reach 172 pounds. For him, modern dance takes on new meanings and looks now as a choreographer, including his new piece, ''Muse of Fire.'' <P>A performance of the piece comes to the Byrdcliffe Theater in Woodstock on Saturday following its June premiere at New York City's Symphony Space and one night at New York's Public Theater.<P><A HREF="http://www.poughkeepsiejournal.com/today/lifeentertainment/stories/li070502s2.shtml" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><BR>

Dynamism, rhythm give dancers momentum

By TOM STRINI
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
March 7, 2004

Gleaming dynamism was the first impression of Ben Munisteri's dances Saturday at Alverno College, in a program shared with the Danceworks Performance Company.

Munisteri is happy to let a strong beat propel his dancers and to link steps and gestures directly to melody.

Hot-Shot Formalist
How to mix and stir ingredients with a savvy hand; easy on the spice
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

And I realize I've been missing that quality all evening in Jacob's Pillow's Doris Duke Studio Theater—not necessarily the tenderness (underscored by Vangelis's score for the film Blade Runner), but simply the dancers' mutual acknowledgement that what they do has an impact on each other.

Janus-Faced Dances, Interrupted, Look Forward and Back
by ADELE NICKEL for the Village Voice

Take, for example, his world premiere, Tuesday, 4 a.m., inspired by the mysterious, pre-dawn state of mind that, he says, sets up a duality between structure and spontaneity, for the "formalist plunge" he's taking with his DTW program. The theme of the evening, he says, is "dances that are at once structured and unstructured."
