Chicago Tribune - Highly Recommended

"...Through Feb. 21 at the Auditorium Theatre, "Bold Moves" features a formidable world premiere by British choreographer Ashley Page. Just as knotted and thorny as its music, Thomas Ades' Violin Concerto ("Concentric Paths"), "Tipping Point" mythologizes the physical, creating a cool, metaphysical universe ruling the actions of the heavens, the earth and human beings alike. Jon Morrell's striking scenic design - five giant squares of weighty, cracked mineral surfaces - brings home the conceit, aided by David Finn's lighting."

"...This elemental and organic work has been compared to shifting tectonic plates-and it does have a menacing geological grimness. The couples regularly collide and combine with and against the relentlessly claustrophobic music. It's silly to call it an intensely physical piece-all dance is that-but Page wants no pretty pictures. The "tipping point" is passed and, if anything so schematic is possible, the music has won out over the movement. Anyway, the opening night crowd loved every leap."
