"Energetic Volcanoes of Jazz""Fosse-Style of Story Telling"–Sara Jarrett….Dance Spirit Magazine

Review From Dance Spirit Magazine- Sara Jarrett

While clutching her trophy-made of a magnificent, glistening dancer with a high extension and metallic decorations spiraled around her body-Daniele told the audience, “I hope that someday you feel as honored and fulfilled as you have made me feel tonight.”

The award ceremony was enclosed by 14 dances from 11 choreographers that ranged from pure funk designed to have fun and entertain, to emotive movement born from a very internal place of the creators.

The show was a pleasantly balanced teeter-totter of movement and thought. On one extreme, Jay T. Jenkins and Geoffrey Doig-Marx showed two pieces each that dazzled like energetic volcanoes of jazz erupting to the foot-stomping sounds of New Funk Foya which accompanied Jenkins’ dance by the same name and Sing, Sing, Sing (with a Swing) which accompanied Doig-Marx’s “Knock 3 Times Tell ‘Em Charlie Sent You”.

Jenkins’ work was a very rhythmic, earthy-based style incorporating African Dance movements while Doig-Marx worked with a theatrical, Fosse-style of story telling using sexuality and lifts. In his dance titled A Trio of Three, the male dancers swooned over the females while the girls strutted their stuff with the power of lust.

Review from Show Business Magazine- Victoria Yoffie

Geoffrey Doig-Marx rounded out the evening, combining great technical performances with strong theatricality. Doig-Marx’s dancers developed a similar performance quality and included a sense of humor. The offbeat, playful choreography, such as when three male dancers lifted a female dancer above their heads while smiling at the audience, makes the works fall somewhere between musical theater, jazz and modern dancing. I am interested to see what else Doig-Marx has to offer to see the depth of his choreographic style.

Review from American Dance Guild Festival

The Mantis Project, directed by Geoffrey Doig-Marx shared a high energy, explosive jazz piece involving 13 men and women. The dance, Madison-N-57th, brought show stopping precision and excitement to the predominantly modern dance festival.
