Glimpes of Beauty in 'Nostalgia'

Saturday, April 29, 2000

Datebook, San Francisco Chronicle The other two, more interesting pieces were by KUNST-STOFF artistic directors Tomi Paasonen and Yannis Adoniou. Adoniou's "Yiayia" was a suit of dances ranging from athletic to surprisingly tender, set to a pastiche of faraway Chopin with percussion and spoken words. A good-looking blond mooned the audience, a tattooed mezzo-soprano sang an eerie vocalise, and Adoniou himself took turns partnering others, including Nora Heiber and Samuel Pott, in episodes that often achieved considerable sculptural beauty.
