Reviews

"Cathy Wright's "Wombman" (get it?) evokes an entirely different aesthetic. She crosses a tulle-bow, pout-and-flounce, Barbie-legged girliness with an underlying reek of blood--and ends up with early Madonna, that mix of minx and sphinx, sex and hex. Wright's bevy/coven toss and thrust in a crotch-centered haze, bits of finery flying off this way and that. It's funny, nearly self-parodic, but Wright has latched onto something deep. And that, plus her committed performers (including dance gypsy Jennifer Mack and Xenon emeritus Christine Maginnis), keeps "Wombman" from being silly." Lightsey Darst, mnartists.org

"The second-annual "Renovate" includes dance-community mainstay Jim Lieberthal, who makes sweet modern dances; the provocative Jaime Carrera, whose dance-theater works on identity politics aim to shock; Marciano Silva dos Santos, a lanky luscious dancer with TU Dance; Cathy Wright, who’s always unpredictable; and Zenon Dance Company member Stephen Schroeder in a choreographic debut."
