The Good Goodbyes:
Dancers: 7

"Frank Chaves collaborated with Chicago pianist Josephine Lee, who accompanied the dance live. Her original score, lovely and soaring, is well met by Chaves' flowing, golden-lit moves for seven dancers, ones steeped in ballet imagery and understated elegance."

- Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune

"...when Chaves taps his ability to capture a central truth in human interaction through the use of natural impulse and more core-centered gesture, the work transcends emotional indulgence."

- Lynn Shapiro, SeeChicagoDance
