Cid Pearlman Performance

"The big-boned, unself-conscious
and full of personality."
San Francisco Chronicle

"...intelligent, sensual choreography..."
San Francisco Bay Guardian

“…cool intensity…”
New York Times

“…brash wit and postpunk aesthetics…”
LA Weekly

“Wit is a rare commodity in dance. Even more than its gentler cousin, humor, it demands a finely tuned eye and ability to observe with detachment without letting go of commitment. Cid Pearlman has what it takes.” 
Rita Felciano, San Francisco Bay Guardian 

“I want to live in the little societies that Cid Pearlman creates: people hold their ground when they need to, still they have an essential gentleness toward one another.” 
Janice Steinberg, San Diego Dance Critic

" was Pearlman’s Drowning Poems that trembled with a poignancy and grief so textually rich it took my breath away.
Julia Ciapella,
