LYDIA JOHNSON DANCE IN THREE PREMIERES - SEPTEMBER AT NEW YORK LIVE ARTS

"Johnson is adept at capturing the beauty and pathos in music -
her musical choices are well-considered, and it's clear that she
really 'feels' the emotion contained in the notes. She translates
harmony and texture into a narrative of human intimacy and empathy."
