Beautiful dancing, Relevant, Sincere, Intense, Disappointing

See it if You like modern/contemporary dance. The dancing is great and should have been left to tell the story along with the audio/video sets.

Don't see it if You can't overlook a poorly written story used to try and force an idea. It's important one and emotional but doesn't ring true as written.

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Great dancing, Intense, Ambitious

See it if You want a play, told best through dance, with a powerful message about violence against women.

Don't see it if You want a well-crafted play. While the dance is excellent, the script & the actors' performances are clunky & often fall flat.

May 15th, 2017

"'She' feels urgent in its aims, if less assured in its execution...The most successful dances show women’s physical freedom transformed into something far more jagged. But abstraction is less helpful in capturing violence through language...The direction, by Phaedra Michelle Scott, often seems unsure whether to focus on the speakers or the dancers...If the piece is not entirely effective as a work of art, as a piece of advocacy and as a goad for discussion, it is passionate and necessary."

For a previous production

“From beginning to end, ‘SHE’ delivered incisive, evocative commentary on the subject of sexual and gender violence…The closing piece gave emotional buoyancy to the evening…‘SHE’ was a truly stunning and powerful artistic statement made up of so many individual contributions. But what truly stands out is how Parker managed to link together movement, images, stories, and a number of genres of music into such a coherent and dynamic performance.”
