So I spent my summer choreographing the US premiere of Bryony Lavery’s play Stockholm at Stageworks/Hudson.
The play got a rave in The New York Times
“Choreography, the deft work of Jennifer Weber, is essential to “Stockholm,” since Todd and Kali are dancing fools and their range of movement swings wide. Sometimes they skip about as blithely as Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds in “Singin’ in the Rain,” but their natural form would seem to be the apache dance, with its all-out brutality. In bed, needless to say, they’re highly kinetic, gold medal gymnasts.
The narrative use of dance serves a twofold and paradoxical purpose, both making us feel the couple’s shared sensual rhythms and keeping us at a remove, since a pas de deux admits two only.”–Ben Brantley, The New York Times
