Dance at the Odyssey – 2022 Reviews

LA Contemporary Dance Company (Dancing in Snow):

POETICENGAGING AND INTRIGUING… I was instantly drawn in… The commitment from the Odyssey to this summer dance festival is extraordinary.” — Tam Warner, LA Dance Chronicle


Primera Generación Dance Collective (Nepantla):

PERFORMANCE-AWARE HONESTY… movement, games, personal stories, current events, songs, video… [a] party at the Dance at the Odyssey Festival.” — Benn Widdey, Culture Spot LA

ANOTHER REMARKABLE NIGHT FOR DANCE AT THE ODYSSEY… While [Primera Generación Dance Collective] addresses heavy issues of politics, discrimination, identity and stereotypes of the Latinidad experience in the U.S., manages to infuse the stage with lightness, satire and laugh out loud humor along the way… For the betterment of the dance community and the delight of the audience producer/curator Barbara Mueller-Wittmann and associate artistic director Beth Hogan of “Dance at the Odyssey” have delivered yet another noteworthy company to their stage.  Thank you.”— Tam Warner, LA Dance Chronicle

SUPERB… brilliantly performed by Gabriel Eduardo Jimenez Montes [whose] physicality and focus on detail made ÍNSULA a success.” — Jeff Slayton, LA Dance Chronicle
