Success in the US!
The tour in the US with Deborah Hay's Figure a Sea was a major success. The NY Times: "This Sublime New Dance Work Embraces Wonder." SF Gate: " ...an extraordinary new work." "The dancers add up to a diverse, wonderfully sleek and resilient crew; anywhere you look, there’s something appealing and it is always beautifully articulated." Bachtrack: "existentially tender and, finally, terribly poignant, terribly human." Seen and Heard International: "The evening was unusual and rare – modest, contemplative, and intelligent, it satisfied the soul in these noisy, troubled times." The US tour was made possible with support by The Embassy of Sweden, Washington, DC, The Swedish Arts Council and Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation. Read more.
