Accolades from 2016 US touring performances of Figure a Sea

"This Sublime New Dance Work Embraces Wonder" -- Siobhan Burke

Performed by 20 dancers of the Cullberg Ballet, with an original score by Laurie Anderson, it’s one sublime hour of asking without needing to know.  [link to review...]

"Cullberg Ballet dazzles after 15-year absence from Bay Area" -- Allan Ulrich
SFGate
Absent from the Bay Area for 15 years, Sweden’s famed Cullberg Ballet returned over the weekend, brandishing a new aesthetic policy and an extraordinary new work.

"Deborah Hay’s Figure a Sea Creates a Space for Reflection" -- Jane Rosenberg 
Seen and Heard International
Meditative, spare, hypnotic, fascinating, and tender – words that aptly express the experience of seeing Deborah Hay’s Figure a Sea. Her minimalist aesthetic combined with her insistence on the poetry of everyday movements forge a quiet yet compelling inner dialogue for every dancer, and offer the audience a window into the workings of each dancer’s mind and body.
