[Agami] is the kind of dancer who truly appears to live onstage, moment by moment, in a highly conscious state. A mesmerizing performance, a very big pay-off after years of L.A. dance-viewing to see a woman artist of this caliber create dance in our city.”
Not every good choreographer develops a language, and Ms. Agami speaks her borrowed tongue with considerable skill."
