"Woolly Mammoth Comes to Dinner have been refining a kind of awkward-sexy that is starting to be amazing. They are mining the discomfort of attraction-repulsion schemes, working with a turn-on simultaneously negated. I like that Woolly has the courage to be ugly with their body positions, voices and makeup. It’s high fashion. It’s somebody’s obsession – the power of humiliation and boldness. It’s a come-hither confrontation.  The twinge of uneasy moments are not just exploited but extended and explored. (...) Woolly has been building a language of such moments."  Seth Nehil for PICA blog

"People have a hard time describing the kind of modern dance that the three local ladies who make up Woolly Mammoth do, so I’ll make it simple: They’re fun, fresh dancers who clearly take the craft of innovation seriously. Their crisp, forceful movements demand focus from the audience and their work varies from intensely joyful to intensely somber. Since forming in 2006, the often-brightly clad dancers have created site-specific dances for glamorous locations ranging from East Burnside to a llama farm."  SM

"Woolly Mammoth are up to taking the TBA WORKS stage next year on their own and would make a slammin’ evening of dance, as original as it would be great fun. Let’s make that happen."  Lisa Radon for Portland Monthly Magazine
