Arts DANCE REVIEW: DANCE COLLECTIVE
A CONSPIRACY OF DANCES DELIVERS ARTISTIC DELIGHT
Karen Campbell, Globe Correspondent Date: 04/01/2000
In Kramer's humorous but erratic "Swan Song #1," Kramer is a woman deluged by mail solicitions. From her rocking chair, at one point upside down, she reads a litany of ills she has been asked to help cure. But one real letter slips in, asking "Are you still dancing?" Indeed she is, and beautifully, in interspersed dances with a dynamite 15-year-old summer company apprentice, Jeffrey Louizia. These little gems have nothing to do with the theatrical conceit of the work but stand out as lively miniatures, melding hip-hop and street dance with modern dance. Louizia displays real skill, versatility, and a dynamic presence.
