Time Out New York Review:

Review: Song from the Uproar
By Marion Lignana Rosenberg

FIVE STARS! ...director Gia Forakis's fluid, gently hieratic choreography & contribute to the magic of this extraordinary piece, a paean to a woman whose indomitable spirit sings on, even in death.

Wall Street Journal Review:

Staying in Character
By Heidi Waleson

Powerful and New.... Gia Forakis' ingenious multimedia staging was built on stylized gesture, incorporating soft-focus black-and-white films by Stephen Taylor that suggested the inner and outer lives of the protagonist without being prescriptive.
