“Lane Gifford packs delicious movement into land•scape n. but breaks things up beautifully with anxious speaking and relaxed running; the combination is breathtakingly good. She also chooses music well, tossing in a spicy throwdown section that drips street energy and amps the landscape. The movers are exceptional; the men move with silky power and the women with solid electricity. Even in this company, David Scarantino stands out for his flow and buttery extension at full speed. The speaking bits are just odd enough to keep us focused, with dancers lining up to deliver stammering expressions of need and yearning to an onstage microphone. Something deeply exciting is happening here.”

“land•scape n. is Lane Gifford's creation. “Here’s the thing,” the words echo from a microphone downstage. The group commands the audience’s attention, sometimes peeling into solos and duets, sometimes folding into an ensemble, all moving together. They line up and speak and stutter into the mic about what they want - from coffee tables to coffee - anything and everything superfluous in life. It’s a piece that uses different forms – music, recording, speaking, movement, props – seamlessly.”
