Dishette

(duet) (1996)

In the duet Dishette, "questions of freedom, control, sexuality and identity are played out against a musical pastiche of such Motown hits as Mr. Big Stuff... the choreographer executes jazz kicks through the slit in her tight sequined skirt to show off the strong technique that lines her maverick feminist critique."

- Dierdre Kelly, The Globe and Mail

The dancers "oscillated between smiles and talk of beauty, and hard dancing spiced with grabbing, wrestling, and kicking. Smart choreography, and a powerful finale."

- Miriam Seidel, The Philadelphia Inquirer
