"“Keep her safe..” is a major accomplishment for Wan-Chao. It is a haunting piece....Chang
succeeds as an innovator of fusion forms and as a performer. Her
dancing is clear, subtly nuanced and well executed."
~Joanna G. Harris, Culturevulture.net, 2010
"Wan-Chao is at the forefront of this promising new genre [Ethno-Contemporary Dance]"
~Rita Felciano, San Francisco Bay Guardian, 2010
"...the graceful arms and gestures of Wan Chao Chang illustrated the narration via silhouette, torso reclining, swaying in memory, compliant, yearning;...Wan Chao emerged once or twice, moving with her characteristic slender grace."
~Renee Renouf, Ballet.co Magazine, 2010
"...Whatever the origin, Chang’s performance was distinctive, graceful and gently persuasive."
~Renee Renouf, Ballet.co Magazine, 2009
"A trio of women
in white danced an impeccably synchronized choreography of
glances and head gestures. Choreographed by Wan-Chao Chang
whose extensive cross-cultural training includes Balinese
dance and music, There was like something that Ruth
St. Denis dreamed of making but lacked the technical training
to manifest. The work recalled a women's Modern dance chorus
from the 1920's or 30's updated with deeply embodied non-Western
movement that could only be possible with the cultural migrations
and fusions of the past thirty years."
~Keith Hennessy, CultureVulture.net, 2008
"Long, sheer, and
white head scarves and skirts lent a visually pleasing presence..."
