BEST CHOREOGRAPHER 2008 – Best of the Twin Cities, Minneapolis-St.Paul City Pages

“Powerhouse” – Claudia La Rocco, New York Times

Morgan Thorson teams with the sublime slowcore band LOW in pursuit of ecstatic and corporeal perfection in a real-time performance ritual. This reverential spectacle transfers the myth of perfection from the religious to the theatre world as a roving chorus of performers undertakes angelic choral singing and Thorson’s uniquely dynamic choreography. While extreme restriction is transformed into powerful kinesthetic expression, believers and non-believers, dance-enthusiasts and live music-lovers will experience HEAVEN’s acute force of attraction.
