"I have recently observed the majesty of human movement’s capabilities. My Accidental Departure, by Susana B. Williams, was one of an excellent series given at the Dance-Forms 76th International Choreographers’ Showcase. The third one to be precise, following Kelly Schoger’s avant garde ‘Beauty, Identity, Release,‘ & the trident-twirling bodhisattva that was Shoko Tamai’s ‘Dancing Shiva.’"

"As if a prelude to the Independence Day fireworks, Artistic Director/Choreographer Shoko Tamai's Ninja Ballet: "Ma" (Negative Space) debuting at the Secret Theatre in Long Island City, explodes with a dynamic blend of Eastern and Western dance styles, theatrics and the elegance of classical ballet fused with thrilling martial arts fight choreography and live musical accompaniment featuring traditional instruments from Asian, Middle Eastern and Native American cultures that transport the viewer to another place and era."
