“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.”
