In the Boston Phoenix, Marcia Siegel leads off her review of David Parker's Bang Group with some nice words about the Concord Academy's Summer Stages program:
David Parker & Bang conclude Concord Academy’s ‘Summer Stages’
BY MARCIA B. SIEGEL
Attendance has steadily grown for Summer Stages Dance at Concord Academy, and the 400-seat theater was full last Thursday night for David Parker & the Bang Group as the 2003 series concluded. Summer Stages directors Amy Spencer and Richard Colton deserve our thanks for this eight-year-old project. In addition to three weeks of classes with stellar faculty, they’ve brought live, offbeat but high-quality dance performance to the Boston area. All three featured attractions on this summer’s series — Chris Elam’s Misnomer, soloist Peter Boal, and the Bang Group — have sought to rearrange fixed notions about dancing and choreography, and they’ve given us new ways to look at whatever comes next.
