Sextet (1994)
“Her playfulness contributes to the enjoyment of viewing even a brainy, abstract dance like Sextet.Watching patterns emerge becomes a game that is fun and absorbing.” -The Star Ledger

“Kinetic angels, innocent of gravity’s mortal tug… They fly deft and agile, through fast shifting shapes riding the current of movement.” -Dance Magazine

With images of quick darting actions and suspended moments at its core, this dance challenges the dynamic and technical range of the dancers. With commissioned music by jazz composer, Horacee Arnold, this sextet is an exploration of the energy, rhythm and power of six dancers. Following an accumulation form, the dance progresses from duet to trio, quartet, quintet and finally the full ensemble.
