VICKY SHICK presents "Let it Linger"
Lumberyard Contemporary Performing Arts
Gia Kourlas, New York Times — "The dance world has many local treasures, and one gem is the choreographer Vicky Shick. As part of the second annual Lumberyard in the City festival at the Kitchen, Ms. Shick presents “Let It Linger,” a new work in which she’s intent on inching closer to a different side of her artistry: character and drama. Ms. Shick can steal a scene with the seemingly simple act of raising an arm, but here, she’s curious about the possibility of drama — fake and real — combined with dedication to detail and form. And there is her reverence for, as she described in an email, “a trust in actual movement and how the body does it. I’m old-fashioned that way!”
In “Let It Linger,” which begins Thursday, June 8, Ms. Shick strives to reveal the human being behind her performers. She’s also hoping to establish intimacy between the cast — she will be joined by the mesmerizing crew of Anna Azrieli, Mina Nishimura, Lily Gold and Marilyn Maywald Yahel — and the audience. It’s a deal: We’ll linger together. (Through Saturday, June 10; 855-459-3849, thelumberyard.org.)"
