Ishmael Houston-Jones Without Hope

This is an experimental review I wrote during a class taught by Claudia La Rocco this spring. (See her new blog, Culturist.)

Check out our class's reviews on DTW's website.


  1. This is a terrific way to capture the experience. The visual arrangement helps capture the feeling of the words.Great idea for a way to do a review!

  2. Thank you for that reflection on my piece "Without Hope." I must note that the dancer/interpreter of my score on the evening you saw the performance was Jame P. McGinn. I gave the score for "Without Hope" to 3 younger dancers. On the previous evenings it was performed by Regina Rocke and Chase Granoff.

  3. Thank you, Ishmael, for your piece and for the performers names!

    take care,
