                                                          "Brilliant!"
                                                                                               ...Kevin Cooper, Director, The Amos Eno Gallery, NYC

         "I liked Marilynn Danitz's dance, 'DANCER XING'. I loved the calligraphy in
          the beginning...the signs. The images were very strong, very inventive. I
          felt the honesty and the naturalness in the movement... ...its integrity
         The work is motivated. I loved the projections on the body ...the coloring
         of it I liked the way the dance took its time to build... ...and the existing...
         the taking off, the stripping off the costume...
.        ...and the signs "NO", "RECKLESS", "DROPPING OFF THE EDGE"... It conjured
         up subjective feelings in me which I liked. I loved the bubble. The softness of
         that was another place...a secret world. It was mysterious and wonderful...so          captivating! I loved the order...the information that you get from that part, the          directions, the bisons, the jumping deer. It had tremendous images and integrity."
                                                                                                                             ...Dan Wagoner, Looking at Dance

           "Beautiful! The images were so riveting that I didn't know where I was,
           but I wasn't lost in space. It set up an environment for me. I got lost in it.
           The images were wonderful--quite original."
                                                                                                                            ...Carolyn Adams, Looking at Dance

             "a taste of something rarely seen...evocative...took us to the beach, into
             a forest, on the edge of the heavens, and who knows where else...
             a transformation of reality...images of loneliness, mystery and exhilaration
             held our attention, willing to challenge our memories and tickle our imagination.              More work would be welcome."
                                                                                                          ...Brin Quell, The Times Union

            "genius...profoundly moved by the memorable images and shifting moods
            (lyric to tragic)...the cumulative effect was of a riverlike flow that had the
            power of an 'argument'."
                                                                                                                             ...Johanna Fried, Metroland
