Wingéd Review Roundup

NOW Magazine on the show: “Tomlinson takes the audience on a journey that begins with a stomach-churning fall and ends with transcendence…The design provides an added lift, with Sharon DiGenova’s lighting and Jacob Niedzwiecki’s video and imaging lifting us out of our everyday world.”

Eye Magazine: four out of five stars.

Plank Magazine: “Tomlinson’s insight into the damage love inflicts is piercing…”

Mondo Magazine: “The ceiling-video projections created by Jacob Niedzwiecki successfully enlarged the stage to include a sky and create a space for Tomlinson’s characters to fall and fly.”

Props to the whole amazing team I got to work with: David Tomlinson on lead bass & vocals, Diana Kolpak conducting, and Sharon DiGenova pushing photons like it was going out of style.

Eye For Film Reviews Helioscape

The UK website Eye For Film offers a review of Helioscape’s premiere at DANCE:FILM 09 in Edinburgh.

This is a beautifully composed work. Beautifully danced. Beautifully photographed. But what I particularly liked was there was neither an absence of cinematic technical innovation nor an excess of it.

Thanks to Chris for the thoughtful review.
