AUDIENCE REVIEW: Arim Dance in "Currents"
November 10 & 11, 2018
Have you ever seen this company/ before?
Tell us a bit about your history with this group/performer?
I saw Arim Dance perfrom at the Alvin Ailey Theatre. I was there to view the up and coming company which is run by Martha Graham Dance Ari Mayzick.
What was your favorite moment(s)? What inspired you?
I saw the performance of Currents and was astounded by the stamina and technique required to perform the piece. The choreography was extremely complex and created a feeling of vigurous ocean currents.
Describe as plainly and specifically as you can what actually happened during this performance.
Dancers Sarita Apel, Sarita Apel, Carley Marholin, Whitney Janis, Samantha McLoughlin, Jennifer Nelson, Esteban Santamaria, Thibaut Witzleb, Sarah Grace Houston and Sophy Zhao worked wonderfully as one unit. It seems like the dance was made to have no dancer stand but to have the group shine as one, which they did.
Do any images, colors or feelings pop into your head when you think about this show?
I remember seeing the colors of the sea, greens, blues and indigo.
Describe any or all of these elements: music, lighting, the venue.
How did they contribute (or not) to your enjoyment of this performance?
The music was wonderful, very classical and was neat to see classical music with Martha Graham technique. Everything worked together nicely.
Would you like to see this performance / company again?
I would love to see them again.
