“Osserman has been making eccentric and original work since the seventies” (The New Yorker, 3/31/14). Last season the dance critic, Siobhan Burke, wrote“As a performer, Ms.Osserman, who is (hard to believe) in her early 70’s, has her own kind of magnetism.” Ms. Burke also praised veteran WODC member Cori Kresge’s “steely, sensuous strength and staggering facility.” (The New York Times 4/1/2014)
