Cameo” is a piece about women dealing with issues of beauty, aging, mortality and rebirth.
Cameo was commissioned by the Ear to the Ground program of
New York’s Chen Dance Center
with funds from the Jerome Foundation of St. Paul, MN.
“Abby Man-Yee Chan’s clever feminist-tinged trio ” Cameo”. Bursting with originality and a meaningful message about ludicrous behaviors of women dissatisfied with themselves, Chan’s conceptual dance-theatre work needs pruning throughout . She makes delightful use of simple props and invents a sharp movement vocabulary, but every section of her piece needlessly protracted.”By Lisa Jo Sagolla BACK STAGE
