“In many ways, McIntyre’s “Shape” – a helium-light, delightful interlude on a mixed program – epitomizes the kind of whimsical yet canny craft that has made McIntyre such a sought-after young choreographer.”

“Also on the bill was the laugh-out-loud-funny Shape, a short dance featuring three performers who used balloons to reshape our ideas of the body — think boobs and odd heads.”

Reading Eagle

“In “Shape,” to music by Goldfrapp and The Polyphonic Spree, Lauren Edson, Dylan G-Bowley and Annali Rose used balloons in whimsical ways, leaving the audience bathed in glee.”
