Testimonials

 

I have had the fortune to work with Lani in her capacity as a dancer and choreographer.  Lani embodies a delicate and deep balance that merges wisdom, presence, curiosity and humour.  She has a gift for drawing the viewer into a moment filled with raw human dilemma exposed in tenderness and beauty. Her performances ask us to hold the complication of truth. She is brave and fearless and full of surprises.  Her work ethic is rigorous, honest and generous.   Her artwork (is) full of life.

Lani's work, as choreographer and teacher, invites audience and students into the charged space in-between: drama and subtlety, urgency and calm, vulnerability and ferocity.  Here the present moment comes alive with possibility and the world is revealed as poetry

Robert Bingham, Dance artist-scholar

 
 

Lani’s residency was charged with energy, intelligence, and generous teaching. Her comprehensive residency covered choreography, cultural and performance issues, and inspired the Alfred community.

Lani Weissbach is a sensitive and dynamic dancer, and her choreography ranges widely from butoh inspired work to extemporaneous forms. I have especially appreciated her reach into butoh, including its meditative essence and surrealist edges.

The New York Butoh Institute has had the great pleasure of hosting Lani Weissbach in New York City to teach workshops and perform. Lani is an extraordinary, well rounded educator, gentle in her approach and extremely well informed, drawing from multiple disciplines. She is also a beautiful dancer and carries herself on stage and in life with elegance and the utmost humility. We look forward to welcoming Lani in New York again.
