“Towing the line between live performance and cinematic splendor…” – Nirmala Nataraj, SFGate 2014

“Lee’s kaleidoscopic dance views can be visually arresting but it’s provocative storytelling around universal themes that forms the heart of many of her works…” – Mary Ellen Hunt, San Francisco Chronicle 2012

“I can’t think of any choreographer who has taken an approach as simultaneously intimate and large scale as Lenora Lee. In her work, the personal and the political intertwine inextricably.” – Rita Felciano, SF Bay Guardian 2012
