Liz Gerring Dance Company’s She Dreams in Code is like watching the Ironman competition of dance. Forget the projected videos, the neo-yoga costumes, the lighting, the poetry, and the music, and you have something I want to watch.
The dynamics between fast and slow, high and low, and lifted and grounded are executed by amazingly strong dancers who have the technique and finesse to execute a 50 minute piece flawlessly. The most breathtaking moments occurred when the female dancers executed multiple jumps from squatting to full extension – jumping two feet to the side – to squatting again and then balanced in relevé for a low arabesque for many seconds.
All in all, stripped down, this work was impressive and needed nothing but the dance.
