The Fall for Dance festival has slimmed down from a free-for-all combination of "who's who" plus "who's that?" to a more curated slate of 20 companies in five programs. It's still invigorating to see such variety in one show; boredom is never an option, even if the fever has cooled. » read more
Trisha Brown is a polymath—a choreographer, a conceptual artist, a visual artist, and at times, all of those combined. The Whitney Museum will host "Seven Works by Trisha Brown" from Sept 30-Oct 2. » read more

Have you ever seen a dancer sneeze during a performance? Me neither. There must be some logical scientific explanation, but absent that, I’m guessing because they’re in a state of extreme focus. Whereas if you’re relaxed and just going about daily life, you’re at the mercy of involuntary actions like sneezing or coughing. Or when [...]

Raimund Hoghe’s Sans-titre, a collaboration with Faustin Linyekula at DTW through Sep 18, is contemplative, clinical, sentimental, absorbing. Its long passages of taskmaking challenge one’s patience. Yet they also add to the formal, rarefied atmosphere of the spartan, black-draped theater, punctuated by a lone candle flame upstage. Everything is slowed down and reduced to its [...]

I’ll admit it—I have the attention span of a flea, painstakingly cultivated from years of tv, multi-tasking, and computer work.

Recently, I mentioned somewhat felicitously that if I were stuck on a desert island, Mark Morris’ L’Allegro would be one of the dances I’d want with me. I received an enthusiastic response to the (admittedly absurd) idea, so I figured I’d post the first installment of my list and ask people to post theirs as [...]

In the New York dance world, August means rest—very little happens on the familiar stages. But you can sample a number of outdoor performances, as well as the New York Downtown Dance Festival, and some presentations in the sprawling Fringe Festival. So the Joyce Theater’s presentation of four choreographers in early August came as a [...]

Compared to the rest of the year in New York, August’s dance schedule is slender. But you wouldn’t know that last week, as both Paul Taylor Dance Company and Mark Morris Dance Group invaded Lincoln Center—the first outdoors, in the Damrosch Bandshell, free; the second in the cooler confines of the David H. Koch “I [...]

A 16th birthday symbolizes a point in one’s life when big changes are sure to follow. Less pivotal (if nonetheless a major milestone) is one’s 80th birthday, but sure enough, on this occasion for choreographer Paul Taylor, revolution is positively rife in a free, celebratory program tonight at Lincoln Center Out of Doors, at 7:30pm [...]
