Press Mentions:

Human Landscape Dance is on Washington DC's "...Dream Team of local troupes...."

                                                                                     —The Washington Post

"...Human Landscape Dance explored the underbelly of myths and folk tales with ingenious choreography and staging by founder Malcolm Shute."
                                                                                     —The Washington Post

"...it is pitch-perfect and an element of humor and suspense is subtly added..."
                                                                                     —The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Shute emphasized the physicality of Cinderella's labor, while Szegda got to wear the ball gown and go to the ball with Alexander Short, her prince."
                                                                                     —CriticalDance

“…intimacy is a trademark of Shute's choreography.”
                                                                                     —Gazette.net

“It is the kind of work that allows dancers and spectators to expect the unexpected. The company…seeks to find beauty and surprise in life’s most ordinary settings.”
                                                                                     —The Washington Post
