A conversation with composer of EIGHTY ONE.
"An undeniable force and one of the most sought-after American choreographers, Jessica Lang creates artfully crafted, breathtaking ballets that are fresh, subtle, and really beautiful"
Lichfield Live, UK
"[Glow-Stop] captures all the elements of the new style of virtuosic classical ballet that challenges dancers in its form and content."
Stephanie Burridge, The Flying Inkpot Theatre Reviews
"No modern-dance choreographer ever matched Cunningham when it came to the duet form; his duets can be set alongside those by Astaire, Balanchine and Ashton as the last century's greatest." "Cunningham's tightly structured, witty Duets is one of the master's most ballet-friendly compositions."
Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times
