“Spirn points us toward the stories that surround us and the patterns which envelop us. Few people have been able to so consistently produce work that changes the lives of people throughout the world. Her ability to direct our attention to that which is both invisible and right before us is unparalleled.” Chris Aiken, Choreographer
