“Lydia Johnson is a true original whose choreography repays close attention. The new and recent dances she presented were fascinating in the way they isolated and reworked components of classical ballet … Fleeting duets and solo passages are embedded in the flow and the shifts from unison to individual choreography add to the texture. There is no discernible narrative, but you sense the unfolding of some fundamental human story.” —Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times


“Lydia Johnson became overnight one of my favorite contemporary choreographers...her dancers took the floor and within seconds I knew I had found something I loved...for me one of the most moving dance experiences in the last decade.” —Philip Gardner, Oberon’s Grove
