Nothing Festival Web reviews
Here are two reviews of the Nothing Festival that you will not find in the papers.
Tonya Plank--who should win a prize, I think, for Most Engaged Layperson (not a choreographer, not a professional dancer, not a paid critic, just a lucid thinker and vibrant audience member)--provides links to most of the Nothing Festival responses so far and discusses the dances that appealed to her on her blog, Swan Lake Samba Girl.
Lisa Rinehart, an illuminating critic at danceviewtimes.com, reviews the whole festival, coming to different conclusions than the Times' reviewers or Eva.
Next week or so, curator Jeff Larson will post his thoughts on dance criticism--what he thinks works and what doesn't.
Foot will be pretty quiet this week, I anticipate.
