… black night’s bright day … 

“A masterpiece… Kudelka has captured the emotional grief of the lyrics in eloquent simplicity.” — The Globe and Mail

“A deeply moving piece about grief and all the emotions (shock, anger, hurt, despair) that one experiences when losing a loved one. Kudelka’s contemplative work… for 14 dancers set to Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater [is] one I am already longing to see again.” — National Post

“The movement is constantly surprising, inventive and shorn of embellishment” — Toronto Star


Chroma, a dazzling example of cutting-edge, pushed-to-the-extreme ballet by Wayne McGregor... mesmerizing.” — Toronto Star

“A mega-hit… Chroma clearly ranks among the greatest classics of contemporary ballet… Chroma is sleek, sassy, awe-inspiring.” — The Globe and Mail

“A work of cutting-edge artistry… an edgy, sexy romp that gives the audience a chance to savour the artistry of dancers” — Toronto Sun

“Pure dance at its best... Chroma is intense from start to finish. The choreography has a distinctive look, refreshingly … provides a glimpse into the future of ballet and its endless possibilities.” — Danceview Times
