“This piece has an elegant sneakiness — it’s the subconscious that first grasps the themes of memory, loss and resilience. Ober’s fearless rough-and-tumble movement, Johnson’s surprisingly raucous flute-playing and Mendel’s lush film of natural settings inspire an array of emotional responses while also suggesting the presence of precious stories, some well-known, others still secret, perhaps forever so." -- Star Tribune
