Doug Varone and Dancers’ Broken Novel, at Joyce Theaterhttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/doug-varone-and-dancers-broken-novel/1113/
One storyline threads throughout the evening—the relationship between Natalie Desch and Eddie Taketa. In different chapters we see them together, being wrenchingly separated, mourning, and uniting as group dynamics shift around them. Desch is powerful, super pliant, and projects movements into infinity. Taketa is elegant, lyrical, and cat quick. Their bond goes a long way toward binding together the disparate scenes, as does Van Tieghem’s propulsive, often filmic score. The company also includes Julia Burrer, Ryan Corriston, and Netta Yerushalmy, all accomplished in different ways.
