“Normally an artist is careful to avoid recycling ideas. With The Recycle Club, Karen Stokes reclaimed her own. All was sorted and in the right bins for an evening teeming with clever fun.”Dance Source Houston 2009
“Karen Stokes’ Prelude to Three Temperaments blasts open the quirky world of human gesture . . . the piece plays like a careful study of eccentricity – charming, deep with delight, and elegantly rendered by these three diverse movers.”Dance Source Houston 2007
“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
