“In eight beautiful scenes, lasting a little more than an hour Ms. Hirokawa’s 1997 narrative ballet tells this moving and heartbreaking story with a nod to Agnes de Mille and Martha Graham… Stark reality is wonderfully conveyed by this fine company of actor/dancers who with a look or a gesture augment the excellent choreography. There are no Sugar Plum Fairies here but real, honest to goodness people that are hard to forget, especially when siblings are separated.”

“Hirokawa’s choreography is swift and cleanly executed. And the company dancers demonstrate great craft.”

“That’s right. Original art conceived, realized and performed – right here in Southern Brooklyn.”

“Just when it seems that there is nothing new to say about a popular subject, along comes someone with a fresh perspective on it…Hirokawa’s swing dance choreography was as expansive and interesting to watch as the later blend of ballet and modern moves in the two military segments and several of her swing dance couples were superb.”

John Berger, Honolulu Star Bulletin—http://archives.starbulletin.com/2003/07/05/features/index3.html


“In the case of No Light, No Life, Hirokawa used elements of improvisation to create a compelling ‘conversation’ between Flatscher’s LIGHTPAINTING – a term Flatscher uses to describe her particular artform – and the dancers.

“Choreographer Marla Hirokawa made excellent use of the mix of children and adults in patterns that were simple without ever being dull and that cleanly telegraphed mood.”
