BURROWS AND FARGION PERFORMED FIVE DUETS OVER THREE EVENINGS AT DANSPACE NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 3/4/5 2011:
Deborah Jowitt wrote, '…occasionally feeling gloomy during some performance or other, I’ve wished that a fed-up theater goblin would whisk away the show I’m watching and deposit Burrows and Fargion in its place', and from artsjournal New York, 'The simplicity of means in Burrows and Fargion's work and the sheer fun that pervades it seduce you into loving it. All the while it's inexorably revealing its genius.'
