Chicago Sun-Times Review of Pohaku

"Revolutionary Acts' isn't just the overarching theme of ConFest. It is embedded in the content and actions involved-both off stage and on. Take, for example, Christopher K. Morgan's "Pohaku". It fuses modern dance with kahiko (a traditional form of hula) and English with the indigenous Hawaiian language."

Catey Sullivan, Chicago Sun-Times, 8.12.18

Critical Dance Review of Women and Choreography (Tiffanie Carson & Adrianne Fang)

“Carson’s choreography maintains the visual interest. Bodies undulate as light travels over them, and the limbs of the dancers stretch and extend seemingly into infinity...Another female choreographer who merits attention is Adriane Fang. Her duet, conflict/Resolve, is as intriguing and impactful as B.U.G. [Backlight. Uplight. Glare.]. Go female choreographers!”

Carmel Morgan, Critical Dance, 3.27.18
