From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald:
Director checks her ‘Ego’ at the doorMore....
EgoArt’s artistic director, Nicole Pierce, uses improbable sources to generate movement.
One of her new dances, for example, is the result of an argument two company members had about who sings “The Rainbow Connection” more persuasively, Willie Nelson or Kermit the Frog.
To confuse the issue even further, the sound mix that accompanies the dance - in the next installation in EgoArt’s ongoing series of postmodern vaudeville shows in Cambridge - layers excerpts from both renditions, with surprising results.
Just like the quirky, pioneering choreographers of the 1960s Judson Dance Theater, Pierce, whose new “Ego Show 4: The Anti-Depression Project” opens Thursday at Green Street Studios in Cambridge, reveals an ongoing obsession with extreme juxtapositions and the role of memory.
