In Judith Mackrell’s Top Dance of 2018 article for The Guardian on January 3rd, 2018, Cathy Marston won praise. The choreographer is recently gaining attention for her Jane Eyre, which was premiered for the Northern Ballet of Canada last year (featured on the list) and is now coming to New York City, where American Ballet Theatre will present the work at the Met.
Marston’s work 16 + a room was also mentioned, along with work by Crystal Pite and duo Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar for Ballet BC, the company which Marston directs.
The steady stream of good reviews and full-length works by Martson (Jane Eyre and Queen Victoria) serve to reinforce our excitement that Martson’s work will soon hit the American big-leagues. It is time for a woman’s full-length work to gain the attention a new Ratmansky or Wheeldon ballet would garner.
