There is no traditional narrative such as story or characters. The Most Elusive Hold deals with universal subjects such as interaction and connection. Each dancer represents their own entity, energy and occupies their own space and time. When they interact with each other, the dynamics shift to create a dimension of time and space that is parallel with our world but more concentrated and enhanced.

“The Most Elusive Hold” is a successfully challenging piece that becomes a meditation on the immediacy of performance as much as anything else.

I’ve never seen a work by Yin Yue before, but I’ll be on the lookout for her in the future after seeing this terrific dance. The work is clean, geometric, exciting, and complex.

a mercurial dance that challenged its cast of five dancers, Liane Aung, Jane Cracovaner, Adrian Hoffman, Jim Kent, and Karl Watson, with a dense amount of complex material in a relatively quick pace throughout.
