What People are Saying…
Through brilliant choreography and original music, the dialogue between dance and medicine seems surprisingly natural and unforced as if the parallel between these widely different disciplines were, like a new continent, simply waiting to be discovered.
Bodiography has achieved new heights, leaving the audience and cast distinctively touched to their very core
Ms. Caruso's choreography was at its best when it moved dancers across the stage and had levels of crescendos and stillness.
It was amazingly heartfelt...her beautiful spirit radiated from every pore of her illuminated body and permeated the air and stage around her like a phoenix's spirit rising and reluctantly (but joyfully) releasing into the air and then through us the audience to touch our souls and allow us to consider and reminisce about all that we too have lost and won in our own lives' journeys.
