Review

Excerpts from review of Bucharest performance published in GARBO online magazine (Romania):

'How to Watch Dancing' is a heartfelt philosophical performance about dance. I called it a 'dialectic of dance' and of dance practices, a show performed with so much grace which struck me and left me meditative for a long time after I saw the performance... 

'How to Watch Dancing' is for everyone: for the contemporary dance spectators and for the dancers themselves because it answers to all those questions in an incredible way. It’s surprising to see the moment of a dance dissect with a surgical precision. And I remained with this impression that Stephen Batts is a dancer, a choreographer, a philosopher and also a 'surgeon'. His show 'How to Watch Dancing' is doing the almost impossible act of dissecting the dancing moment in a poetical way. What are we looking for that is not a tangible shape, but a complex manifestation of a performative body, developed in time and space?
