Anna Mouat, Calgary Herald – "…six dancers… slice their way with… precision through the lofty, architectural space…" (More)

Anna Mouat, in the Calgary Herald February 14, 2004:

 

The performance opens with unbound, choreographed by Alberta Ballet soloist Sabrina Christine Matthews. The curtain unveils six dancers standing in stillness and silence, who then proceed to cut and slice their way with speed and precision through the lofty, architectural space, against a backdrop that alternates from copper to midnight blue. Towards the end of the work, the mood shifts from a focus on spatial design to romantic lyricism.
