SHATTERED captures the spirit and rhythm of Michael Gordon’s music.  In its premiere at the Joyce, Shattered was described as, “so potent you almost sense the ashy aftertaste of a thunderbolt” by Dance Insider.  The full company forcefully captures the essence and energy of the piece – an engaging, complex tour-de-force performed with lightning speed and intensity.  “Life throws its blows, we are stunned—thrown back and, sometimes, shattered.  Life holds the unexpected.  Embrace it and be strengthened.”  - Elisa Monte
