Writes Lewis Seagal of the LA Times, "Moments of Charm, Passion Enliven Second Kaleidoscope Bill - An inventive duet and a brilliant example of theatricality shine among too many drab offerings":<P> <A HREF="http://www.calendarlive.com/theater/20000716/t000066969.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.calendarlive.com/theater/20000716/t000066969.html</A>

More on Dance Kaleidoscope. Seagal writes, "The vitality of world dance provided respite and rescue, with Laila del Monte's white gossamer shawl evoking wings with great delicacy in her artful flamenco character study 'Dulce Despertar.' Accompanied by guitarist-composer Adam del Monte (her husband), singer Marisol Fuentes and flutist Damian Draghici, she began with an innocent, childlike bravado and sense of unlimited freedom and then shaped her dancing into an ever more weighty, voluptuous and intense coming-of-age statement, with plenty of complex heel work along the way."<P> <A HREF="http://www.calendarlive.com/theater/20000716/t000066954.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.calendarlive.com/theater/20000716/t000066954.html</A>

Writes Jennifer Fisher of the Dance Kaleidoscope program she saw, "In most cultures, there are age-old ways of combining spiritual matters with movement, and perhaps only in the evolution of Western artistic tradition did dance get so severely separated from religion. Occasionally, that fact still bedevils choreographers."<P> <A HREF="http://www.calendarlive.com/theater/20000724/t000069531.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.calendarlive.com/theater/20000724/t000069531.html</A>

From the Los Angeles Times by Lewis Segal:<P><BR><B>CHANGES AT DANCE KALEIDOSCOPE PROMPT CUTBACK</B><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Los Angeles' annual multi-week modern, classical and world dance festival, Dance Kaleidoscope, will be cut back and restructured this year. Don Hewitt, its longtime board president and artistic director, has decided to retire from producing the event, and the festival's five-member board is seeking his replacement. In the meantime, the board is hoping to produce the festival this year, but with a less ambitious schedule.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <BR> <P><A HREF="http://www.latimes.com/print/calendar/20010202/t000009928.html" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE</B></A><BR>
