“Duet for Nocturnal Female and Diurnal Male is a
beauty, a standalone piece in which the woman
(Valerie Szurdack) represents a creature that
comes alive only at night, and the man (Luis
Sotelo) one that awakens only with the rising
sun. Each is otherwise frozen or limp in the
arms of the other.” (Jennifer
Dunning, The New York Times).
