Re: “Calling all critical first responders: Marin, Teker, Radin

unwelt I think it was Art. A reflection on everyday life. A performance installation that contained movement. If I were to categorize it, I would not put the movement of the figures as "dancing" as I would not categorize the noise as "music". It was certainly a piece that encourages discourse on "what is art", but I could have watched a 40 minute video of the N.Y. subway and came away with the same aesthetic experience. Plus it would have only cost the price of a token, rather than $35. The comment by Trish questioning should an audience only be exposed to work which is critically acclaimed to be pleasant to watch and experience- I would agree that the arts should touch our souls in a number of ways, however, I did not go to the performance last night expecting to be assaulted . And so, if a dance director says "it is dance" then , dance, it is. The only true question why the American Dance Festival felt this piece reflected their goals for presenting the festival and to share their thoughts on the production.
