A review of Ann Cooper Albright’s Traces of Light: Absence and Presence in the Work of Loie Fuller is found in the Summer 2010 edition of Dance Research Journal.
“Cooper Albright’s research method—an ‘embodied approach’—is dictated by her own career as a dancer and much ‘gut feeling.’ Her flamboyant appropriation of Fuller is physical as well as intellectual. The attempt at reconstructing, or more precisely, experiencing, the physical aspect of Fuller’s performances dictates her understanding and analysis of the choreographies. The exploration begins as we witness the performer slipping into the costume and preparing for the performance; this performer is Cooper Albright. … Kinetic knowledge opens a vital dimension that purely literary examinations of dance often miss or misunderstand.” -Marion Kant, Dance Research Journal, Summer 2010
