Reviews of Steven Mark Tenney’s previous sci-fi play, One Night, Two Motels.

“Wildly imaginative and highly entertaining…very intelligently written”Miami Sun Post

“Lively…passionate…has its own language”Miami Herald

“Bold and stylish…quite entertaining…nicely staged…visually inventive…[the playwright] thought very carefully about his themes and storylines”Miami New Times

“…bursts of brilliant language…words and phrases pinpoint beautifully where our language might be headed…the whirlwind of terms he put out there was mind bending — clever, hilarious, and frightening all at the same time”Coral Gables Gazzette

“Pack it into the cryo-freezer for a few generations”Sun Sentinel

Reviews of Susan Tenney’s previous
dance-theater work.

“Sculptural and severe…“Five Moments” was terse and elegant…a quiet assurance and economy that lets the piece’s ambiguities resonate. Each ‘moment’ has an immaculate inner stillness that begs to be shattered.”Village Voice

“Highly original, very well integrated…At the end of the Tenney collaboration, I wanted to see it three more times…”The Times

“Susan Tenney is remembering, and as she is a choreographer, she does it by giving other people dances, and the other people range in age from 9 to 67. That alone is marvelous….Tenney’s piece conveys the power of the ‘small’ moments that resonate in our memory…fascinating, charming, and rich”
Life Upon the Sacred Stage

“Once again Tenney has created a drama with defined characters…Ashton, Taylor, and Graham come to mind…expansive, reaching, stunningly dramatic…This is a wonderful work.”The Princeton Comment

“…an excellent demonstration that dance can, through its beauty, act as an effective forum for the exposition of significant human issues.”The Nassau

 “The company stops at nothing to leave its Berkshire audience with vivid memories before they close up shop for the summer.  Their Beach Boys “California Girls” medley fits the bill.  Choreographer Susan Tenney goes to town on this one, and the troupe shows the songs to their best advantage.” — The Transcript


… pure dance – big, free, and pleasing – gorgeous to watch. … Tenneyʼs work contained some great comic dancing.” — Villager Downtown
