"If you live in the five boroughs, it can seem so far away. But the Alexander Kasser Theater in Montclair, home to the Peak Performances series, isn’t hard to get to, and the latest program from Mr. Elkins should be worth the trip. Known for his witty infusions of hip-hop and postmodern dance, he unveils his new O, Round Desire, set to music ranging from rap to classical music, and a companion dance film, “A Hundred Indecisions,” based on T. S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.” The program also includes his popular Mo(or)town/Redux from 2012, a colorful rendering of Shakespeare’s Othello." — Siobhan Burke, The New York Times
