A review of Fall for Dance's third program by Martha Sherman for danceviewtimes.

 

The quartet offered a balanced unity of movement, yet it was hard to take your eyes off of the story’s central pair. Francisco Ruvalcaba, a guest artist from the Limon Company, boiled with physical and emotional power as Othello; Julie Kent danced the innocent, bewildered Desdemona, her gentle movements convincingly subtle under the voluminous white costume. It was Ruvalcaba’s shoulders, not just his scowl, that seethed with jealousy, and in the denouement, although they were hidden behind their nemeses dancing in front, the tragedy was confirmed in just a glimpse of Ruvalcaba’s powerful arms and Kent’s limp body.

A review of Nevada Ballet Theatre and Cirque du Soleil in "A Choreographers' Showcase" by Mark Whittington in The Las Vegas Review-Journal.

But now, the companies blend effortlessly. The dancers from the Nevada Ballet and Cirque move comfortably outside their comfort zones — modern, jazz, tap, break dancing, contact improvisation, acrobatics and, yes, ballet. Without a program, you’d be hard-pressed to tell which dancers came from what company.

 

But true to its name, this showcase turns the spotlight on the choreographers. And they shine brightly as they explore a variety of styles in nine new pieces.
