Tuesday September 29, 2009. Studies Project: Towards an Adjudication Model for Dance Criticism
7pm. Abrons Arts Center at 466 Grand Street.

Conceived of and moderated by Brian McCormick
New ways of engaging with art and artists have gone mainstream, and the artists and their audiences are active in online communities that are democratic, participatory, and user-directed. Is the age of a singular opinion holding substantial sway over?

How does one person’s experience of a work, no matter how informed that person is, compare to the rich discussion (in words, movement, video, images, music, links, rehearsal, residencies, showings, and live presentations) that takes place over the life of a dance? What purpose does dance criticism, in its current form, retain? And how do we bring about the change that the institutions resist? Panelists will include Laura Colby, Maura Donohue, Doug Fox, Marc Kirschner, Jaki Levi, Eric Ost, David Parker, Sarah A.O. Rosner, Paz Tanjuaquio, Eva Yaa Asantewaa and others.
