Concert Dance Inc.
Artistic Director Venetia Stifler and her CDI - Concert Dance Inc. are marking 30 years on the dance scene – an impressive achievement, all the more so in an art famous for its casualties.
Lyrical beautifully designed work.
Every aspect of the choreography is truly satisfying.
Artistic Director Venetia Stifler continues to push the creative button of CDI.
Teeming with talent, not only because of the dancers’ great technique and expressive qualities, but also for their choreographic contributions.
A revival of Stifler’s “El Salon Mexico”was a highlight of the night.
(Venetia Stifler) ...a highly skilled choreographer...” ”...an authentic choreographic talent...
...inspired by the magnetic stage presence of its interpreter (Venetia Stifler)””...frames the space with simplest weighted gestures...
A witty interaction between art forms
...one of the best works I’ve ever seen by a Chicago choreographer
This music is to important to not be heard again and again (Aftermath, Ned Rorem)”...the dancers made every fluid movement resonate with stark emotion.
The music, movement and visuals blend together to form a stunning artistic creation.
(Venetia Stifler) ...she frames the space about her with the simplest weighted gestures of her livid arms. It is Isadora Duncan without the skips and falls.
