"The first thing to be said about "60x60 Dance" is that it is a masterpiece
of organization. The idea - 60 new dance pieces are performed to 60 new
pieces of music, each lasting no more than 60 seconds - is quite mad. But
it's this kind of madness that makes the cultural world go round" New York
"a thoroughly enjoyable and original hour" - Classical 96.3 FM
