Review – Reggie Wilson / Lynden Sculpture Garden’s ‘Moses(es)’ – ‘Rain Dance’

‘The next section took place around and within Forrest Myers’ painted steel “Quartet,” a monumental, fractured outline of a cube. The dancers used the same vocabulary, lots of liquid movement of the arms alternating with fidgety bursts of energy, but they moved individually rather than as a group.

And eventually, they all paraded into the tighter confines of a neighboring sculpture, a roofless square enclosure. There, nearly twenty of them created a roiling cauldron of energy as they sung a call-and-response field holler. Again the juxtaposition is striking–struggle and exhilaration, freedom and confinement.’
