… A revelation….. Mr. Weinert — who’s one of the dancers — has achieved a remarkable feat in resurrecting a piece of this length: 90 minutes with intermission. Shawn forged a different style for each section, with specific geometries, dynamics and structures

    - Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times, September 2018

Impressive, strange, a puzzle you want to solve, a social order changing before your eyes.

    - Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times, August 2016

Fleeting, mysterious and wholly alive.

    - Gia Kourlas, The New York Times April 2015

With finely honed dancing and a score by Chris Garneau, “Monument” shuttles eerily between the present and a rarely seen past.

- Siobhan Burke, The New York Times April 2015

With strong performances, Mr. Weinert and Ms. Kruger made a case for more than historical interest.

 Weinert offers as a contemporary equivalent the convergence..., of the here and now and the placeless and the ghostly.

- Apollinaire Scherr, The Financial Times, August 2015

Weinert has the utmost respect for tradition, but is unafraid to experiment with novel ways to share his work.

- Nancy Wozny, Dance Magazine October 2015

I respect this on a lot of levels, but I also think it’s the most hilarious thing in the world.

I was totally fascinated, both by the ingenuity of Weinert’s
rebellion and the larger context in which it fits.

Going up against MoMA is a pretty bold and commendable move on Weinert's part. Dude deserves rounds for his ingenuity and audacity.

Performance-based artist Adam H. Weinert
is truly pushing the limits of the medium.

Now choreography isn't something you can so easily show off in a museum environment. But Weinert has found a way to make it work.

Weinert and Adler-Ariele perform a duet involving a string of unlikely connections — shoulder on shin, foot on back, chin on foot — but, even when strained to their limits, they maintain an otherworldly coolness.

Mr. Weinert in “Gobbledygook” was something new...
memorably vulnerable.

Weinert first ventured into film with Match Box Dances (2011), four short, site-specific pieces. He approached them “like Polaroid photographs created in a fleeting modality.” Surpassing his expectations, the film has been screened at several festivals worldwide and has
received over 632,000 hits on Vimeo.

The solo for Mr. Weinert is . . . the evening’s most startling and successfully expressive dance. There are images of alarm — claustrophobic turns, clutches at the walls, collapses — that make a real impression.

The initial vision is of a naked young man (Adam H. Weinert) . . . [as] a despairing wraith that William Blake might have painted.

Here the stark naked and brilliantly choreographed Weinert . . . starting prone at our feet, probes gravity and his wall like a caterpillar seeking a chrysalis hook.

...four dancers executed simple phrases. These were sometimes fluidly beautiful: quick little blooms of movement that caught at the stacks — of language — Ms. Carson continually built and tore down. An understated solo for Adam Weinert was particularly thoughtful.

‘Here Here’, a collaboration between Sloan and Dalton alumnus Adam Weinert (2003) who now dances with Shen Wei Dance Arts, was based on the principles of chance operations created by Merce Cunningham and John Cage . . . . The result was a complex work that didn't seem spur-of-the-moment at all.

The haunting work won us over from the first shot, a dance in yellow filmed on the streets of grimy, beautiful DUMBO. The collaboration between choreographer Adam Weinert, dancer Naomi Reid-Davis, musician Roarke Menzies and other assorted neighbors captured the seductive grit of industrial Brooklyn in the way that every edgy fashion shoot tries, and fails, to do.
