Minneapolis-based choreographer Morgan Thorson gets a positive review for her new work “Heaven” from the Village Voice, and it is always nice to see CakeIn15 pals get praised in print. “Heaven” is currently in it’s run at P.S.122 in New York City and features a Minnesota based ensemble, with Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker of Low as members of the cast and on stage musicians. Performer Elliott Durko Lynch gets a particularly nice shout-out, and the vocal work is noted as one of the best parts of the performance. Overall, the VV writes that;

“Thorson and her colleagues have created a powerful piece of dance theater…it reveals failed strategies, fits, and penitence in interlocking modules (without any personal relationships developing). What does accumulate, movingly, is the dancers’ fatigue, their sweat, the sound of their breath. When their voices finally soar together, they seem to glisten. Perfection? Who cares? Heaven is the journey.”

“Heaven”, which premiered in Houston, will play at the Walker Art Center, one of the co-commissioners of the work, in March 2010, after criss-crossing the country through the winter. If heaven is in the journey, it must also be in the anticipation.
