Yu's work 'Re-Place' receives positive reviews in Cultural Oyster

February 10, 2017

Professor Jin-Wen Yu’s “Re-Place,” performed during the Madison Ballet's midwinter concert, "BARE," was said to be "by far the best of the three pieces he’s set on Madison Ballet over the last few years," according to Susan Kepecs in Cultural Oyster.

"BARE," which was presented Feb 3-4 at the Bartell Theater, also featured the work of choreographers Jacqueline Stewart, Shea Johnson and Madison Ballets Artistic Director W. Earle Smith.

Kepecs further commented that Yu's work "can be masterfully musical, like the great ballet choreographers." She found "Re-Place" to be his "most musical work ... since the middle of the last decade."

The work was set on five Madison Ballet dancers -– Erickson, Murphy, Rogers, Warring, and Mia Sanchez.
