Here is what people are saying about reSURGEnce:
reSURGEnce by Kinetic Elements was like watching an extended episode of So You Think You Can Dance and I mean that as a compliment. I hope that TV shows like SYTYCD encourage people who wouldn’t normally see live dance to go and see shows like reSURGEncebecause it is wonderfully entertaining and performed by a very talented bunch of dancers.
The show is divided into short pieces and they all have something to say through their dance. This young company is a positive role model for their peers as they do not shy away from dancing about sexuality, the concept of beauty and the G2o. They commit to their dancing fully and you can see them sweating and hear them breathing which all adds to the power of the piece.
The music choices are perfect and some of them really evoked emotion within me. The ensemble worked exceptionally well together but I personally had a hard time looking at anybody else when Chelsea Lee was on stage, she is a fascinating dancer and has a very strong presence.
I also loved the two solo pieces by Elizabeth Vecchio and Sandra Clarke. Vecchio’s piece was extremely powerful and her costume choice added to the piece as well. Clarke’s piece was beautiful and her music choice was paired wonderfully with her choreography. In another piece these two performed together for a moment with just their backs to the audience and the lines they created were amazing.
The whole show was a wonderful way to pass an hour and anyone who loves dance should see this show and anyone who wants to be introduced to dance should see this show, the pieces are short so you get a real taste test of different styles and dances. I commend Kendra Hughes on creating this company and her excellent choreography.
