This is an ongoing series of discussions by dancers about modern dance. This time, they ask…
“Are We Trapped in a Static Presenting Model?”
Much of contemporary dance in the Bay Area continues to be presented Thursday through Saturday at 8pm in traditional venues. Distance is often created between Contemporary Dance and popular culture, and the pervading opinion is that to be considered legitimate, a work must have certain presentational aspects, be associated with certain venues, subscribe to particular codes of relating to audience, etc. Is this helping/hurting the form?
