"More remarkable these days is the fact that each dance, or section thereof, has its own identity, its own vocabulary. The way partners in heartSTRINGS keep rushing exultantly across the floor, one dancer scooping the other up into a sort of battering-ram position, appears in no other work. Nor does the lovely motif of a seated performer embracing a comrade's leg...fastidiously crafted."
