“These dancers looked like rugged youths and yet danced with a maturity that is imbued by living amongst a people with a long history. What he did worked.”

 “Connor conveys a sense of being swept away by currents of water, or reaching out in every direction and being pulled back… it was a mesmerizing and beautiful flow of canon-like sequences.”

Johnette Rodriguez, The Phoenix

“A work both majestic and elegiac…The power of News Falls Like Rain is that it has the ability to evoke some of the reality of our own lives.”

Leona Baker, Style Weekly


“The way times change but families remain the same... overlapping periods of time, using some Dadaistic devices in hopes of re-routing our search for continuity and logic. What The Waitress Saw is a dance with an idea.”

Marcia B. Siegel, The Boston Globe

“a fascinating, scintillating, tour de force. Simply put, it is exquisite.”
