"In Seeking Beauty, Korhan Basaran tries to distill what is truly beautiful. But it the journey toward this aesthetic ideal that captures his interest, not the actual attainment of this elusive goal. His movement vocabulary ranges from neo-classical to contemporary, and contains and instictive simplicity and emotional honesty that connects his work to a universal language."

~ Alexandra Johnson, BroadwayWorld.com
