Mimi Garrard and her dancers were good company in an evening of
literate playful dance on Saturday night. Part of the pleasure of
her four new pieces was the way Ms. Garrard played with spatial
form. She used bodies as straight verticals and curving shapes.
She also sent those bodies out into circumscribed but nonetheless
bountiful-seeming space along hard-edged geometric and voluptuous
winding paths, sometimes in synchrony and then splitting slightly.

In Ms. Garrards ingenious new Renderings, Laurie Bulman
and Steffany George danced sometimes in unison, sometimes in
counterpoint but always as if each were the others alter ego.
Even when they were not looking directly at each other, they seemed
bounded by some mysterious sixth sense. Renderings was
clever and formally compact.

Garrard organizes big, sentient dancing into elegantly composed structures.

Within a consistently high level of work, the premiere of Romanze,
with music by Franze Schubert, and performed by Laurie Bulman,
Steffany George, and Akari Sasaki, was outstanding. This piece is
remarkable for its compositional integrity and the creativity
of its movements.
