Five 4 Now (2010)
"The restaging of Five 4 Now by Jürg Koch, is an energetic quintet set to the beautiful singing of Monteverdi’s “Mentre vaga Angioletta.” At times perfectly matching the flowing harmonies of the music and at others exactly juxtaposing them with sharp quick movements, Koch’s choreography is a treat to watch. The piece accentuates individual dancers’ phrases by embedding them in closely knit ensemble work. The dancers, all demonstrated a lovely sense of fluidity as they easily transitioned from whirlwind partnering to precise group work."
