Premier at Boston Center for the Arts with Boston Dance Alliance, June 17 - Jun 25, 2021
"I loved the score. It was perfectly timed for the pacing throughout the piece. There were highs and lows and more 'jivy' rhythms and more tender rhythms. It all came together so well though! I especially liked that sort of remixes of Capella's poetry. Relatedly, I liked the structure or 'outline' of the entire thing in general. It was just really nice to see it come together, and it never felt like I was bored or confused, every piece just spoke to the next, and dancers played off of one another, it was awesome. Curtains! I LOVED that incorporation! It was so cool. Sometimes there were moments when the curtains were part of the piece, sometimes they were just background, but it was always perfectly incorporated - never intrusive or distracting, just a part of the dance."
"I've seen In The Space Between 3 times and each time it gets better! Victoria is a brilliant choreographer and her dancers are phenomenal. The movement between the dancers and the colors of their costumes and the overall set was all spectacular. I look forward to the next production!"
"Having seen the original version at the Boston Center for the Arts and the most recent version, I can surely say this was a bravura performance. The program was extended, deepened, and the costuming at the back end must be seen to truly appreciate how much it uplifted and enliven the overall production. This work by an emerging local choreographer should be supported by all who believe art is the representation of our soul speaking to us; be it through visual and/or performing art. Make sure you see In the Space Between whenever it is shown again so that you may explore the space between within yourself!"
"Absolutely breathtaking! Really loved the use of the fabrics within the piece and how beautifully they used the space. Victoria's vision is just exquisite!"
"I was very impressed by the show! The choreography was creative and beautifully executed."
