  • Crawford, Shanti. "Dancing in the Real World." 'Despite the difficulty of working in public spaces, the appeal of site-specific performance is undeniable. Any artist willing to take on the Brooklyn landscape as a "theater," allows for the possibility of choreographing bridges, tides, and skylines into a work. And when done well, a sitespecific artist [Red Dive] can so transform a space that the audience will never see it the same way again.' The Brooklyn Rail, October 2003.

  • Van Gelder, Lawrence. "Arts Briefing."

  • Horwitz, Simi. "In-Site-Ful Theatre: Moving Audiences Thru Flat or Factory." 'The challenge in creating this hybrid piece--which, as noted, merges boat ride with video and audio elements and live performance--is to suggest what Brennan (Huskey) calls a "unified narrative." She adds that Peripheral City is, oddly enough, an abstract work, with touches of "reality" theatre and ritual thrown in for good measure.' Backstage, May 23-29, 2003.

  • Bradley, Brad. "Peripheral City: Rediscovering the Gowanus Canal is billed as an adventure tour combined with a multi-art event that takes intimate audiences on a journey down the Gowanus Canal in a 16-seat pontoon boat. In fact, it is much more than that. Added to its description should be a great example of living history in an examination of the relationship of the city's human population with nature as seen in its most urban inland waterway."

'The conceptual, performance and visual artists behind Red Dive's One Less Sense aim to create "site-specific, multi-sensory art events." The recipient of the first Bessie award for installation and new media, Red Dive is a sprightly four-year-old collective of five women artists. And while One Less Sense throws '90s postmodernism, '70s happenings, and junior high haunted houses into the aesthetic blender—and employs the work of male artists—it's unavoidably girlie. That's not at all a bad thing.' The Village Voice, May 2, 2000.

  • Featured Interview/review as told to Susan Avery by Camille Aldama 12 years old: "Happening/Blind Man's Stuff." 'Oh my God, This was, like, so cool. I mean, like, they gave us blindfolds and we had to walk through mazes. Then there was this sticky stuff on the walls, which was really gross. (I wiped my hands off on my pants.) Then there was, like, no way out, so I started banging on the walls because I thought I was trapped- . . . .-But, like, the whole time we can't see anything, ya know? Another thing was, they gave us a rope and told us to lean back. I was leaning on my brother, I think, 'cause I couldn't see anything. Oh yeah, and we had to sing too. That was really funny. The whole thing is cool and kind of freaky. Really, it's, like, about trust.' New York Magazine, May 1, 2000
  • Blum, Wendy. "Points of You." [Red Dive] mounted a performance event that deliberately displaced the prioritised sense of sight and focused instead on touch, taste, smell and sound. '[One Less Sense] was a perspective-shifting event to experience and seemed labor intensive to produce. Features of the phenomenal undertaking included haunting vocals, a wall of peeled apples, a composer directing an audience chorus, a corridor of whisping air, . . .. As a participant, I experienced incredible vulnerability, trepidation, excitement, confusion, comfort and ultimate communality with the guides and with my cohort audience members. It was a respite for my eyes and a pleasurable change to receive so much information through touch in the context of live performance.
