MAXINE HEPPNER : CREATIONS

Snow

"The performance was an inspiring, unsettling, beautiful, and haunting series."

Cate Gable, Mindjack: the beat of digital culture, San Francisco, Jan. 2001 

“As I watched... I found myself feeling as I have at moments in a church attending a high mass in Latin: knowing that there was power and depth and grace before me and all around me - even if I didn't know the language. It has been a wait of years now to get to see Heppner perform - and well worth that wait it was!”

W.Porter, AscribeNewswire, San Francisco, January 2001

 

Snow : Description of work

Premiered in 1996 and performed many times from 1996-2004 in solo concert repertoire and in “Duets for Dance and Piano” concerts in Asia, Australia, North America and Europe.

 

Snow: Reviews

Snow was wonderful, quirky, so bizaaringly moving. There was also a brief moment when Heppner looked like this Japanese cartoon character I use to read as a kid !!!”

Watching Heppner dance has been likened to seeing the portrait of her inner self being projected on stage. The way you feel inside your skin forms the basis of your body image.  “Snow’ is used as a metaphor for a particular complex realm of being. In just a little space on stage, ‘Snow’ became an allegory about human survival. Beneath its pure white beauty is its ability to choke, bury and conceal.” 

Xinna Tan, Flying Inkpot, Singapore, 2000
