"Awesome" preview in the P.I. Apr 12, 2010

Chris Grygiel at the Seattle P.I. posted this preview of West
If you're going to call yourself "Awesome," you'd better have a good sense of humor or be very, very good. "Awesome," the seven-piece Seattle band/performance troupe, doesn't take itself too seriously. And they've definitely got the skills to match the lofty status their name implies.

Seattlest reviews Heaven Apr 6, 2010

Amy Mikel on Heaven:

Heaven succeeds in creating a soothing sound and visual study on what might be a disturbing topic. Thorson’s arrangement doesn’t shock, disgust or awe, but transcends the idea peacefully and with dignity. We liked this work very much, and left feeling refreshed, inspired and happy.

New dance blog by Alice Kaderlan reviews Heaven Apr 3, 2010

Dance critic Alice Kaderlan has a brand new blog at seattlepi.com where she reviews Heaven:
The translucent white lighting and the flowing white costumes immediately convey ritual and sanctity. It's as though we've entered hallowed ground and we are as much a part of the experience as the performers we're watching.

Michael Upchurch reviews Heaven at On the Boards:

"Thorson's Heaven is better described as ritual-movement theater than dance. It goes for trance-inducing pattern and sound, and only after the trance has been induced does Thorson delve into restless realms that ask for dance prowess from certain members of her company."
