Shayna Samuels writes in the NY Times:

Quote:
Two years ago, Gina Gibney began an informal partnership between her modern-dance company and Sanctuary for Families, a Manhattan-based advocacy group for battered women and their children. Working with members of the company, the women learn to communicate through movement. They might be shown a picture of a beach or a house in the woods and asked to create a gesture that reflects what it means to them. Troupe members help them string their responses together, creating a short dance.

Choreographers try new recipes to spark creativity

By WILMA SALISBURY
The Cleveland Plain Dealer

Do too many cooks spoil the broth?

Not if they're preparing Food for Thought in director Gina Gibney's choreography *******.

For the last seven seasons, Gibney has guided groups of Northeast Ohio choreographers through a collaborative process that culminates in public performances. In the beginning, the programs were performed before Thanksgiving, and the admission was a donation of food for Cleveland's hungry.

Footnotes: Andy Russ's sound score batters performers and audience

By EVA YAA ASANTEWAA
The Village Voice
March 1, 2004

The houselights are still up when Gina Gibney's Thrown gives you its first smack to the ear. Composer Andy Russ, live at a computer, unleashes a jackhammer blast, rendering Gibney's careful intro about her title and theme entirely superfluous.

A Tempest in a Theater

By JACK ANDERSON
The New York Times
March 2, 2004

Endurance and perseverance were celebrated by Gina Gibney Dance in two works by Ms. Gibney on Feb. 18 at the Duke on 42nd Street.

Her new "Thrown" quite literally got off with a bang - a series of mighty blasts that set the entire theater shaking.

Capturing Life's Unpredictability
By Lisa Traiger
Special to The Washington Post
Friday, April 2, 2004; Page WE24

Quote:
GINA GIBNEY'S dances are polished to a tantalizing sheen like semiprecious stones. One New York dance critic calls her "a poet of modern dance." Others laud her unencumbered manner of approaching movement as an exercise in expressive beauty. Amid the cascading shapes and flowing lines to which her dancers seem well attuned, Gibney is the last choreographer one would expect to get caught up in disorder, instability and disorientation. But there she is, having just completed "Thrown," a work that pushes her six elegant dancers to their limits and beyond.

Gina Gibney Dance had flashes of brilliance at Dance Place Saturday, but only flashes. The New York-based company of women performed Gibney's newest work, "Thrown," which began with a sense of engrossing tension but lost focus.

Behind the Scrim, a World of Subtle Textures
by JENNIFER DUNNING for the new york Times

Her delicate, beautifully worked-out pieces have always seemed to juggle this fundamental duality of everyday life. In "unbounded," four panels of fine white scrim literally fence in the four sides of the stage space, with Kathy Kaufmann's exquisitely subtle lighting creating smaller worlds within that enclosure. One of the great pleasures and surprises of the hourlong dance is the way each of the five performers, all women, manipulate the scrim so that they can slip over or under it as they enter and leave, later tearing it so that it matches the fluttering shreds of Naoko Nagata's soft white tops and skirts.

Wrapped Like a Chrysalis, Dancers Emerge From Bondage to Freedom
by MEGAN FREDRICK for the Village Voice

... Gina Gibney's Unbounded featured six women, ... , alternately flying through powerful, off-balance turns and curling, small and vulnerable, into passive positions on the floor.
