Cid Pearlman Performance
"The dancing...is big-boned, unself-conscious
and full of personality."
San Francisco Chronicle
"...intelligent, sensual choreography..."
San Francisco Bay Guardian
New York Times
“…brash wit and postpunk aesthetics…”
“Wit is a rare commodity in dance. Even more than its gentler cousin, humor, it demands a finely tuned eye and ability to observe with detachment without letting go of commitment. Cid Pearlman has what it takes.”
Rita Felciano, San Francisco Bay Guardian
“I want to live in the little societies that Cid Pearlman creates: people hold their ground when they need to, still they have an essential gentleness toward one another.”
Janice Steinberg, San Diego Union Tribute
"...Pearlman’s choreography, palpably influenced by punk-rock aesthetics, is a stirring fusion of aggressive attack and strong technical lyricism. Her voice, mature but quirky, speaks volumes about what it means to be making dances in a world dominated by trends without falling prey to their commercial lures.”
Sima Belmar, San Francisco Bay Guardian
