New York City

STELLA (2012)

"The ensemble dances in a relatively shallow space across the gallery and gets up close to front-row folks in ways that heighten the persistent air of tension, risk and thrill. There are the crisp rhythms of street dance, the stark, deep-queer glamour of a fashion catwalk, the enigmatic drama that just does not quit. Bell calls upon a seemingly limitless supply of intricate movement ideas and shows no hesitation to share this largesse. And, from start to finish, her disciplined crew is ON IT. Video closeups amplify the unfiltered anxiety with performers staring into the camera and repeatedly tugging or clawing at their own bare flesh for reasons that remain mysterious. As for STELLA, she simply blasts herself into The Met Breuer and makes her formidable presence felt."- InfiniteBody by writer Eva Yaa Asantewaa (July 2017)

suite (2017)/STELLA (2012)

"The American choreographer Sidra Bell and her dance company explores a series of dramatic scenes in the show STELLA. The fearless and technically honed dancers explores ideas of their own private space, consent, voyeurism, hero worship and participation. The work shows a strong physical expression but also an expression that is softer, dark and romantic."
