PRESS

“Left was as wickedly sophisticated as you might expect from the veteran dancer and choreographer. Dressed in white ruffs, feet daintily crossed at the ankles, Laughlin contemplates a teacup. The cup becomes a symbol, an adversary, an oracle and a crown. Laughlin played fussy courtier, sly plotter and finally an instrument of destruction. Then he dives into the saucer with the air of a man who has come to terms with his life.”
