Digby Program Shines With Mature Artistry
Choreographer Kate Digby sculpts kinetic, surprising, frequently bold visual statements, full of repeated but never repetitious movements. The Jewish Advocate
Polished and impressive The Boston Herald
Rambunctiously eclectic The Boston Globe
The most stunning of three premieres was a substantial, developed ensemble work titled Absolute Zero... Like Digby's mesmerizing Llama Dreams, this is choreography as landscape. The Boston Herald
The most intriguing premiere on the program was Kate Digbys Llama Dreams. Digby, a stunning mover, spent much of the piece on all fours, head to the ground and hands curled inward to form hoof-like stumps. As Melissa Kenny and Irma Leissring, rolled on the floor, accompanied by their own rhythmic breathing, Shannon Andrews, reaching, stretching and curling inward, seemed trapped in an invisible cage. All seemed curiously weighed down until Camilla Finlay in an elegant orange gown, appeared to magically unleash them, and they moved about the space pawing the air and stamping the ground. It was a strange but compelling puzzle. The Boston Globe
