Twin Cities Star Tribune
“Athleticism frequently defines artistic director Carl Flink’s choreography, and the Twin Cities premiere of 2011′s HIT, in particular, takes his brand of derring-do to new levels. Inspired by the research of biomedical engineer David Odde, who studies the tumultuous environments within living cells, HIT has the scrappy Bryan Godbout, Megan McClellan, Eddie Oroyan and Laura Selle Virtucio pushing, punching, leaping onto and rebounding off one another. The daredevil movement is sometimes gasp-inducing, especially when Virtucio gets tossed over her fellow dancers’ heads in an Olympics-worthy instant. For all-out gutsiness, not to mention its exploration of the unexpected poetry within aggression, HIT brings to mind New York choreographer Elizabeth Streb, a pioneer in virtuosity shaped by extreme physical action.”
