"I have seen CQ moving in directions that embrace, envelop, and encompass a generous span of performance endeavor, and it’s a wonder that this little project, started decades ago by a group of outliers, perseveres. But it’s no longer “the little engine that could": it can, and does! CQ widens/
broadens its tracks while maintaining integrity of purpose, means, and product."
–Brenda Dixon-Gottschild, Professor Emerita of dance, Temple Univ.
"CQ is one of the few publications that brings us writing directly from the bones and sinews of dance, illuminating the practice as we do and understand it. Please support us as we continue to accompany you on your own dance journey, and as we re-envision our future. Your support is a critical part of the conversation.”
