“Dandelion Dancetheater’s “MUTT” is mad and maddening, a wild whirl of song, text, visual design and movement whose anarchic energies sometimes seem shot straight out of Dada….Sometimes merry, sometimes considerably more sinister, sometimes rather irritating; always demanding to be seen”-New York Times 2009

"Of the three world premieres, the most successful was Kimiko Guthrie's There….(The work) exuded a sense of urgency…a fresh look at a basic human concern; it was well thought out and excellently presented." -Rita Felciano, San Francisco Bay Guardian 2003
"Outstanding in concept, choreography and performance was Kimiko Guthrie's There. Guthrie both wrote and read the text which deals with being, becoming and knowing the self.” -Joanna Harris, Voice of Dance, 2003
"The strongest piece on the show, both in certainty of purpose and in edge of execution, was Kimiko Guthrie's There. Ms. Guthrie's shows are always heavily attended by other dancers; she's probably on everybody's short list of whose work is most interesting. Hard-edged, arresting, clear, There is nevertheless hard to describe." -Paul Parish, Dance View West, 2003
"...There revealed Guthrie to be the choreographer to watch, one capable of producing provocative works." -Joyce Nishioka, Asian Week, 2003
“...the real thing: clear, emotive and thoughtfully structured.” -The San Francisco Examiner, 2002
“Intense, intuitive choreography.” -The Los Angeles Times, 2001
“(Dandelion Dancetheater’s work is) a lively blend of the personal and the political, a fluid journey to the emotional through the physical and back again....Their dance works evoke and penetrate the multifarious strains of the human condition. As choreographers, dancers, and educators, they exhibit an inspiring level of sophistication and integrity.” -Sima Belmar, San Francisco Bay Guardian, 2000
“...using only a few witty colors and applying them heavily, Guthrie designed a dance about instinct and community, competitiveness and unity.” -Ann Murphy, The Oakland Tribune, 2001
"Kimiko Guthrie is multidisciplinary, multicultural, and multitalented.…(She) has proved her ability to allow text to illuminate movement and vice versa through a solid interweaving of live music...singing, speaking, and dancing." -Sima Belmar, San Francisco Bay Guardian, 1998
"Recollections of a Hapa Cowgirl (an earlier version of Miyo in the Middle), choreographed by the fantastically expressive Kimiko Guthrie... is a riveting ride, presenting the All-American family and its dark secrets for what they are....If any one piece from Small-town, USA ever hit a nerve in the national conscious, its "Recollections"....It needs to be seen." -Kimberly Gaurdino, Santa Cruz Good Times, 1997
"... Guthrie’s eloquent simplicity has an almost epic quality." -Rita Felciano, San Francisco Bay Guardian, 1996
