February 2, 2012 by Steven Weisz in The Dance Journal
“This is an artist who is important to know,” says Philadelphia Dance Projects executive director Terry Fox. “Leah has paved the way for site-specific work and has forged new territory in the way she creates structures in her dances. Philadelphia Dance Projects’ mission is to give context to contemporary dance as an evolving form. This program shows the history of an artist with a particular style and virtuosity that we felt was important to examine and allows audiences to see the common threads throughout her works. It’s about getting close to the mover — watching logic and inspiration happen and getting inside the heart of it.
