Media Coverage

“That’s probably the one word I would use if someone asked me to describe Yellow Towel in one word: ‘powerful’.”

Avneet Sharma,Mooneyontheatre.com, 2017-06-19

“Michel gets to the very essence of vulnerability with a brand of presence so intense that you forget you’re watching a performance. Suddenly, the body is as agile as the mind.”

Gia Kourlas, 4columns.org, 2017-01-13

“As a black dancer and artist working in Montreal and internationally, Dana Michel has an uncanny sense of the artistic and political zeitgeist in her twitching, semi-verbal, prop-wielding performances.”

Jordan Arsenault, Forgetthebox.com, 2016-06-03, about Mercurial George

“It was a bold production, in equal measure disturbing and illuminating.”

Gia Kourlas, The New York Times, 2014-12-11, about Yellow Towel
