...written for Martha Graham's ballet company, and that meant economy of means... Later...Mr. Barber recast his work as Medea's Meditation and Dance of Vengeance. In getting back to the originals, Andrew Schenck...bares the raw fierceness of the Medea ballet. But more than that, Mr. Schenck and company turn in performances of danceable pulse and suppleness, all recorded in vibrant colors.
Lawrence B. Johnson, The New York Times,12/2/1990
