“Framing Dance, A Discovery Series”: February 7-10, 2017: KSD presents their student show Framing Dance at the Zilkha Hall.
"In Houston, it's Karen Stokes who comes to mind as an artist tightly tied to Texas. I named Stokes a choreographer of "place" over a decade ago when she created Hometown, her choral/kinetic poem to the Bayou City...She is not only the choreographer of Houston, but on Houston." Texas Arts and Culture, 2015
"The most adventurous, if not specatcular, work this year from a Houston-based choreographer was the premiere of Karen Stokes and Bill Ryan's The Secondary Colors in October at The Hobby Center. Culture Map, 2011
“Karen Stokes is down with a video camera, is a wiz at Home Economics (check out those cool, grunge Renaissance Faire gowns and corsets in Distreston), loves to sing in a Laurie Anderson kind of way, and has more quirky moves than a guilty student caught by the principal . . . she is ripe with fun . . . the evening passed by in a blink, which says something lovely about the pleasantness of the enterprise.”Dance Source Houston 2008
