“I like the slippery elegance of Vermilion and Dishman’s resolve to adhere to the tangible, but just-beyond-our-grasp rules of her game. There is an honesty to her dancers’ insistent pursuits and accumulating/fleeting connections.”

— Susan Marshall, Bessie Award-winning choreographer and MacArthur “Genius” laureate 2.8.2016

 

“Dishman, usually a controlled choreographer of dizzyingly complex erudition, loosens up with Permutations, her first foray into collaborative choreography. ‘Creative risk is a high value to [The Nerve Series], and this element has changed me over the years,’ Dishman says.”

“Quirky, athletic…bodies in rigorous concentration.”

“…raw humanity seeps in…”

“…the dancers move with assurance, gravity a familiar partner they neither fight nor seduce…the choreography plays with surprising phrases of unison, a technique previously willfully absent from Dishman’s palette. Emerging confidently from her accustomed intricacy, these phrases sing gratitude for the one who will always steady you.”
