I don't want to make a habit of commenting on my work but some things are worth clarifying and correcting. The title is, "Is As Does", a board never fell on Beth Wright, and yes, you were supposed to be worried. The audience was supposed to be concerned, sit at the edge of their seats, wonder if the dancers were going to fall. No, I'm not an irresponsible choreographer and the dancers are nothing short of intelligent, talented, risk-takers. I do find it amusing, though, that you were more concerned with the dancers' "health and well-being" than even their loved ones. Yes, Katie Baker's board almost threw her because she was totally invested in the work- a work that we accepted long ago would never be pretty. Life ain't pretty!
Thank you for voicing your opinion of the work because it confirms exactly what we talked about during the rehearsal process. Some people take risks, large and small. We, artists, take risks and others watch and write about it.
I look forward to the review of my next work.
