Dance Discourse Project #5

Writing about dance, where are we now and where are we going?

Do you believe dance writers and critical and informed reviews of dance are near extinction? Is it only now, as we stand to lose these precious perspectives that we begin to understand their worth in the greater community? Dance Discourse Project co-curators Mary Armentrout and Jessica Robinson spoke with dance writers Rita Felciano, Keith Hennessy, Rachel Howard and Ann Murphy about their craft, their relation to the field at large, and the questions and ethical concerns that dance reviewing faces as the internet dominates the dissemination of information. The panel addressed the changing role of newspapers and the inevitable shifts in how the public views, consumes, and communicates about dance.
