“The brilliant New York-based Barton produces delectable works that are quirky, deep, cheeky, and poignant. Her quicksilver, unpredictable movement always astonishes the eye.” (review of a BJM program in The Globe and Mail, Toronto, Canada)

“A gourmet feast for the eyes and ears was had by those fortunate enough to witness the spectacular blending of modern dance and contemporary music.” (review of Busk in Cleveland Examiner, USA)

She has been invited to choreograph for prestigious companies such as the Nederlands Dans Theater and the National Ballet of Canada. Her pieces, Les Chambres de Jacques and Jack in a Box, were presented by BJM in 2008. She is, of course, Aszure Barton, a Canadian choreographer who has received support from such celebrated dance legends as Mikhaïl Baryshnikov. Barton will be at Danse Danse with her New York-based company to present Busk and her newest piece, Awáa, Inviting.
