From Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe:
Black Grace blends cultures beautifully
The six men of the New Zealand-based Black Grace Dance Company can thump their chests, slap their thighs, pound the floor, and fling themselves with primal energy into all manner of jumps, falls, flips, and rolls, their grunts and shouts exuding a fierce virile pride. But they can just as easily sing in sweet three-part harmony, accompanying their lyrical vocals with gestures that gently curve and sway, alluding to ritual, respect, and humble introspection.

From Marcia Siegel in the Boston Phoenix:
Fusion forms - Lorraine Chapman, Kinodance, Black Grace

.... the New Zealand company Black Grace visited the Tsai Performance Center for two evenings sponsored by the Celebrity Series. The group of six men — joined by four female guest dancers on this tour — draw their movement material from modern dance, popular culture, and the members’ collective Pacific Island heritage. Artistic director Neil Ieremia choreographed all seven short works.
