Opposites Attract 

By Susan Kendal "Fading Shadows / Returning Echoes" Yvonne Ng, Robert Glumbek, Dominique Dumais, Tedd Robinson

The contrast between tall and small was explored in triplicate in ‘Fading Shadows / Returning Echoes’, a concert of duets for Yvonne Ng and Robert Glumbek, presented by Ng and her company Tiger Princess Dance Projects. With poignancy and precision, the program of three works featured the dancers’ strengths and vulnerabilities, both personal and archetypal.
