"How beautiful your concert was.
On all levels.
The elegance and refinement in the structure and presentation, including the way you incorporated your musicians, was truly imaginative and striking."
Anna Kisselgoff, Former NY Times Chief Dance Critic
" .....each short work was like a world of its own...Ms. Orihara created an entire mood and atmosphere, giving us a brief glimpse into each of these rich environments before leaving us to imagine so many potential stories.
Ms. Orihara displayed not only her vast range, but her passion for and deep understanding of the art of dance."

“Miki Orihara, the sort of Graham dancer who comes along once in a generation.”
"Miki Orihara, a veteran, can always be relied on to define the form through which Graham's movement speaks"
Anna Kisselgoff, The New York Times
“Miki Orihara was outstanding as the Bride: delicate enough to flutter like a pretty young belle, steely enough to articulate each confused stirring of emotion. This was dancing and acting of the highest order."
