Lewis Segal begins his LA Times article on Donald Byrd:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>In-your-face depictions of erotic excess delivered with deliberately contemptuous technical surety have been Donald Byrd's choreographic specialty ever since he began presenting work in Los Angeles in the late 1970s. But, for all its bracing shock appeal, the most recent example on view Tuesday at the Watercourt in California Plaza exposed the creative limitations of his vision more than it illuminated its ostensible subjects: societal attitudes toward the body, sexuality in dance and the commercialization of desire.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://www.calendarlive.com/calendar/20000824/t000079404.html" TARGET=_blank>Read the full article</A></B>

From the Los Angeles Times:<P><B>CONFUSION IN THREE ACTS</B><P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Donald Byrd's best works combine a sophisticated sense of dance structure with a talent for sardonic social commentary--qualities abundant in many of his short pieces and dance-theater projects but only fitfully evident in a string of recent jazz extravaganzas that have looked more like marketing ploys than creative statements.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR> <A HREF="http://www.latimes.com/cgi-bin/slwebcli?DBLIST=lt01&DOCNUM=16148&DBPUB=20010226WdludHxn&QDesc=Confusion%20in%20Three%20Acts" TARGET=_blank>MORE...</A><P>

From the New York Times:<P><B>DONALD BYRD; TREKKING ON A HEAD TRIP INSPIRED BY TIMOTHY LEARY</B><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Donald Byrd is like the girl with the curl. When his dances are good, they are very good. When they are bad, they are truly horrid. Mr. Byrd's new "HeavyLight," presented on Wednesday night in the opening performance of a five-day season at Symphony Space, belongs to the second category.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2001/03/12/arts/12BYRD.html" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><BR>
