“A very long silhouette, flexible almost to the infinite, a thin face with a sad smile, in the eyes a look of somber passion….One would not be able to create more emotion through the art of silence.”
“Cary Rick is a noble and mystical dance artist of extreme sensitivity, and he communicates his inner fire with a devotion and lyricism that will purify your soul.
His danced and dramatic themes are most often inspired by the bible, and the vision that inhabit the soul of this tormented poet are incandescent.
Dancer, actor and mime, he is all of these at the same time and, moreover, he is at moments the theatre in its totality.
Tall, pale Pierrot, he might have sprung from a canvas of El Greco. His body sculpts space, and his powerful plasticity designs and mimes gestures of such emotional force that they resound and vibrate deeply in the viewer.
This hieratic communication, this uncompromising participation, this quiet determination, the choice of gestures – he alone is the only person capable of communicating them.”
“The personality of Cary Rick is singularly touching. Few movement artists inhabit their instrument to such a degree. An aura of silence eminates from his body that is astonishing….He is the solitary officiant of his own ceremony. He possesses a sense of ritual.
The manner in which he employs a costume or a prop, the inherent simplicity of his comportment, the earnest joy with which he approaches each moment of performing,. All this communicates a feeling of interest for all things that are a part of life, whether these be the trials , sorrow, joy or humor.
Regarding his technique, it is truly remarkable. This originates undoubtedly in his education as a dancer, but an education he has understood to assimilate, a dance not confined to the level of limb movements alone, but which he has allowed to impregnate the very marrow of his spine.
Thanks to this physical science, thanks to his magnetic power and the causticity of his spirit, and thanks finally to a particular inner lucidity, Cary Rick is an exceptional artist, a poet of the human body and space.”
