FROM THE PRESS:
"At the Guggenheim Museum, the "Works & Process" project brought us the Wheeldon-less Morphoses group, now being run by Lourdes Lopez, onetime Balanchine ballerina and ex-administrator of the Balanchine Foundation. Just like last year, a group of dancers—including ABT stalwarts Kristi Boone, Misty Copeland, Isaac Stapas and Blaine Hoven—performed in new pieces by two choreographers working with the same music. This year's composer was the renowned David Lang. Jessica Lang (no relation), a Tharp alumna, has a strong intelligence, an analytical mind and an impressive sense of how to move dancers in natural yet seemingly inevitable ways. The Swedish Pontus Lidberg is fluent, more emotional than cerebral, his dancers more engaged with each other than with dealing head-on with the difficulties of the music. This two-pronged response to a single challenging score was a highly stimulating experiment—let's hope it has a sequel."
