I really enjoyed this performance of dance-theatre and highly recommend it. I loved the choreography by Cassandra Daurden, sometimes jazz, and sometimes contemporary, with all it's drama and humor. I especially liked the "doll" number! Another treat was the aerial dance at the beginning and end of the show. I would have liked to have seen more of that.... full review

"Bittersweet Love" is a truly beautiful piece. Daurden Contemporary Dance Theatre is an incredibly gifted group of dancers and I felt mesmerized by the entire performance.

In the final analysis, "Bittersweet Love" is surprisingly more sweet than bitter, despite a tone of solemnity and seriousness that pervades much of the hour-long production. Exploring the concept of "love" in its different physical and mental permutations, race, gender or even, perhaps, humanity itself (one jaw-dropping aerial act threatens to sail right up to the heavens) the viewer is left with less a feeling of having been enlightened than reminded of the potential that is inside us all. Watching human forms twisting and struggling against gravity and each other, then finally coming together (blissfully or otherwise) again and again is a reminder of how equal we are and simultaneously how separate we are too. A pleasant and thought... full review
