Opening Nights: Director's Choice
Sandra Kurtz, Seattle Weekly
March 18th, 2014

 Just about any dance made to Igor Stravinsky's iconic Le Sacre du Printemps would be a tour de force. Even if you don't follow the original scenario about ritual sacrifice, just working with his ever-shifting time signatures and eccentric accents would qualify for the title. In the case of Molissa Fenley's grueling State of Darkness, it is indeed a triumph just to dance through to the end. Fenley has created a ritualized journey for a solo performer that is both an endurance test and a meditation. Matthew Renko made a very able debut in the part opening weekend, but Jonathan Porretta, who's danced the role before, shows the depth of his experience. He makes the stage seem small.
