links for the weekend

the LA Times is really big into posting historical information about artists these days long before their work is shown in LA. it’s pretty awesome because one of the biggest beefs many have with seeing repertory at large festivals or concert halls is that there is often little context given and audiences walk away thinking they saw the most current offerings of modern dance. so kudos for this article previewing Lucinda Childs. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-ca-spring-lucinda-childs-20110306,0,5976532.story

also this week they posted this gem about dance competitions off-screen http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-et-battle-of-the-dance-20110309,0,3603379.story

also-also, thanks to Juan Aldape’s link on posterous we can share this opportunity to make and submit 60 second dance films. just make sure it’s 60 seconds, we wouldn’t want to upset Doris Humphrey. http://www.dansensdage.dk/side.asp?side=9
