Patterson, artistic director of Austin’s VOICE Dance Company, kicks the work into a higher emotional gear. Forceful and swirling, it is as if she has somehow harnessed breath itself; gasping, panting, sighing. It is an endless series of surprises.
... with Friday evening’s world premiere of “I Am,” Patterson sent forth a clear and exquisite message about shedding human imperfections to discover one’s true self.
“I Am” was emotionally captivating, its formal values intact.
...Patterson has emerged with a powerful and poetic individual voice.
