A story on the company by Judith Mackrell in The Guardian.

In the US, the dance mainstream has long been dominated by the pure-movement aesthetic of choreographers such as George Balanchine, Merce Cunningham and Mark Morris. Under the artistic directorship of Benoit-Swan Pouffer, however, Cedar Lake began presenting work that was almost entirely from Europe, and from a far more theatrically experimental tradition.

Pouffer shakes his head at the some of the first reviews Cedar Lake received in the States. "They were so harsh, talking about eurotrash. If audiences had trusted them, they would never have come to see us."
