“Blue Solo, Joni - Part II is a very short work. Proving Doris Humphrey wrong when she declared that “all dances are too long”, the end of this honest dance comes as a shock, arriving unexpectedly quickly. It is as though Israeli choreographer Idan Sharabi wanted to offer to the audience just a hint of McGuire’s true nature before he had her wrap things up. Performed to Joni Mitchell’s All I really Want, the piece, simply lit, radiates authenticity.”
