In other's words...

"Walking into a dance rehearsal, one doesn’t expect to see a philosophy professor rolling on the floor doing contact improvisation. But when the choreographer is Jess Curtis, it’s best to expect the unexpected."
— Claudia Bower, The San Francisco Chronicle

"We are not just here to be entertained, there is an exchange.."
— Catharine Caraker, A Beast in the Jungle

"enormous physical and metaphysical risk expressed through some of the simplest means with the lightest touch."
— Sima Belmar, SF Bay Guardian

"… the kind of intelligent, evocative dance-theatre … that delights you at the time of watching, then lingers on to make you think afresh … "
— Mary Brennan, Glasgow Herald

"Eine wahre Poesie eröffnete sich dem Betrachter. Wie einen Spieluhr zurückgedreht wurde er in eine andere Welt geführt, der man sich kaum entziehen konnte"
— Die Welt

"Mit minimalen Details aus Schauspiel, Zirkus und Tanz schafften Curtis und seine Darsteller ein wundersam ästhetisches Tableau aus Widerstand und Hingabe, Liebe und Tod. Definitiv eine Bereicherung für Berlin."
— Berliner Morgenpost

“Many have wondered, since the days of the revolutionary postmodern Judson Church movement in 1970’s New York, if there is any truly new ground to be broken in the realm of dance and performance. If there is, San Francisco's Jess Curtis/Gravity may be holding the pickax.”
— Bonner Oddell, SF Weekly
