Celebrate Dance 2013 – Riveting Resilience 
by Rachel Levin, March 9th, 2013
“Lydia Zimmer + Dancers mined this emotional territory of suffering even more microscopically in “Lithium” … As the choreographed duo traveled the stage in cyborg-like, staccato phrases to the spare, ambient music, Zimmer demonstrated once again her stunning aptitude for articulation, as if each gesture was a solitary frame in a stop-motion animation sequence.”

“The most technically proficient piece followed – Lydia Zimmer and Dancers were otherworldly in Lithium. With lines and precision to envy, dancers Sara Silkin, Lindsey Lollie and Lydia Zimmer played with shadow, fluidity and grace that lingers in my memory. Set to the ambient music of Marsen Jules, this piece was made all the more stunning by Eileen Cooley‘s lighting design. Zimmer is another choreographer Los Angeles should keep on their radar.”

“Lydia Zimmer will be making her Los Angeles big-stage debut in Memoriae. Zimmer, who primarily works in the realm of improvisation, blends multiple techniques in and brings to the stage an arresting presence of movement and style. She will be performing her ultra-idiosyncratic solo work to the blended instrumental and electronic soundscapes of the German composer, Marsen Jules.”

    I have to say I was mesmerized by Ms. Zimmer’s performance at the Alex Theatre tonight. Her improvisation felt calculated yet so fluid – so ethereal at times. She was flawless in her movements, She is such a gorgeous dancer. Her dance was breathtaking to watch. It has been a long time since I have seen a dancer of her caliber.
