“A creator of modest, handsome, ballet-based dances, Johnson offers a slow-build première set to music by Henryk Górecki. For “In Conversation (… Like Breathing … Like Flying),” the score is by Philip Glass, whose sense of lucid form Johnson shares. “Dream Sequence” is more playful, a period piece with a Twyla Tharp battle-of-the-sexes feel that floats on the crooning and inebriated swing of Dean Martin.” The New Yorker, 2009
