“On Friday evening the company returned to the Joyce SoHo with “4,” the first section of an evening-length work set to Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons.” In the piece — devoted to the stormy “Summer” section — Megan Alfonso and Adaku Utah share the stage, demonstrating how movement can switch from crisp to balmy at a moment’s notice. The tools of hip-hop, which cause a body to break down and build back up again, give the familiar music a playful edge, even though the dancers aren’t playing around.”–Gia Kourlas, The New York Times

Press Quotes

"The pioneering all female hip-hop group, a fearless coalition of b-girls"
The New Yorker

“Jennifer Weber’s Brooklyn-based Decadancetheatre got things off to a promising start. In The Cage, a world premiere, the four company members balanced their cohesion as a tightly knit unit against individual strengths.”
--Donald Huerta
The London Times


"Ms. Weber is onto something…a performance that is intensely emotional and casually streetwise”
—Jennifer Dunning
The New York Times


“Her leading dancers bring—dare I say?—the feminine mystique to hip-hop. They suspend the expected fierce staccato moves in a matrix of lush fluency and add a dimension of alluring mystery to the form's conventional tough, streetwise attitude.”
--Tobi Tobias,
The Village Voice


“Their unusual blend of hip hop and ballet was so carefully choreographed, it would makes the likes of J-Lo weep”
—Ellie Hargreaves,
The Westmorland Gazette (UK)
