"The scenes, variations of the basic corporeal themes, eventually create a kaleidoscopic effect. The intricacy of the movement, music and edgy lighting of the space result in a play of interchangeable fragments, which leads to mesmerizing compositional landscapes that are very fetching. All seven dances were done exceedingly well and may convince viewers that each chosen way of “All Ways” can make you a better human being" -- Jerusalem Post
