What They Have Said...

 

"...Another highlight of the evening was the athletic Kristen Foote...interpreting Isadora Duncan’s Revolutionary...Foote displayed remarkable strength, vitality and grace in this simple but powerful piece.  That she could capture with each step and arm thrust the spirit of the October Revolution and spirit us, the audience, away to a Russia so distant in time and place, is a tribute to this remarkable young performer."

The Afterlife

- Toby Tobias 03/8/2010

"the luminous Kristen Foote, who illustrated everything that’s wonderful about free, natural movement. Her long limbs, euphoric expression and joyous quality substantiated everything Isadora Duncan put forth about moving."

- Tim Martin (Views on Dance)

The Ensemble As Star

"Isadora Duncan: running, skipping, twirling, with dramatic gestures. The skill of these solos lay in Limón’s phrasing, working around the music with marvelous timing, and in his grasp of Duncan’s rapture. Photographs and written accounts capture her joy in dancing in the open air; Ms. Foote, with her projection and absorption, seemed true to that spirit."
