“What an extraordinary performance. The text is so beautifully constructed, your performance quality and commitment are so powerful. It was a riveting journey.”
Laura Faure, Director, Bates Dance Festival
"Lida Winfield's In Search of Air is one of those rare works of art in which materials and matters which might otherwise seem intimate and private, by the force one artist's imagination resonate toward other lives, predicaments, challenges and accomplishments. Lida Winfield is a brilliant performer and teacher."
Rick Benjamin, Lecturer, Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design
"Lida is the dance-whisperer."
Gary Shore, Department of Performing Arts, Roger Williams University
“[The Woods are Deep offered] a shift in tone, a breath between segments, each of which had a distinct texture, from tender to goofy, violent to playful.”
Megan James, Seven Days
"My 13-year old son saw Lida Winfield’s show today. Even though I have been ‘dragging’ him to dance and performances for years, he never really ‘connected’ with any of it. Not so now. Just wanted you to know that this show affected a school-hating, movement-hating 13-year-old boy. THANKS."
"Ellen and Lida approach the quiet subject of memories of those who have died in a wonderful, touching and often funny way — storytelling through dance at its most delightful.”
Steve Ames, Director of the River Arts Center
“In Long Gone, many emotions were exquisitely rendered . . . I loved their courage in bringing levity and irreverence to the topic of death.”
Caro Thompson, Documentary Filmmaker
