    Tragic Course of a Delirious Blaze

    Charles Isherwood

    December 8, 2013: The rapture of sexual love and the disorienting pain of parting are viewed as through frosted glass in Chéri, a dramatically muted but gorgeously danced new work from the choreographer Martha Clarke, based on the titular novella by Colette.

    Chéri

    Hayley Levitt

    December 8, 2013: Elegant movement, musicianship, and acting are all on display at the Signature Center in Martha Clarke's daring adaptation of famed French author Colette's 1920 novel Chéri and its 1926 sequel La Fin de Chéri. The production delves into these three artistic mediums with a small cast of four talented performers who take on Colette's tragic love story. However, while ambition and artistry shine through, the whole picture that these converging mediums paint is ultimately less than the sum of its individually striking parts.

    Chéri

    Matthew Murray

    December 9, 2013: That love in all its forms is something worth dancing about is a fact that proves equally joyous and tragic in Chéri. Martha Clarke’s arresting new dance-theatre piece at the Pershing Square Signature Center runs scarcely more than an hour, but in its limited time describes, depicts, and deconstructs every imaginable component of romantic affection — all without ever resorting to either cynicism or unchecked sentimentality. Real feelings and real fears are given such searing form that you may long to escape them — but, as the characters experiencing it first-hand learn the hard way, escaping from your own out-of-control heart is fundamentally impossible.

    'Chéri' - A Love Affair in Dance

    Andy Propst

    December 9, 2013: Martha Clarke's new dance-theater piece Chéri, which opened last night at the Pershing Square Signature Center, very well could be the most beautiful looking production audiences will find onstage between now and the end of the year.
