One reviewer takes on the entirety of The A.W.A.R.D. Show Jan 6, 2010
The intrepid Jim Demetre has posted a review of each and every single night of The A.W.A.R.D. Show! on ArtDish. Thoughts on all the performers, the format of the event, post-show conversations and more are included. The article starts out:
As a sometime dance critic, I frequently find my opinions wildly at odds with those of individuals talking in the lobby after the show, writing reviews in the paper the next day, or posting on blogs waiting for me when I get home later that night. I often wonder whether everyone but me was completely tuned out or if I’m just hopelessly out of sync with reality. Facing the critical response after seeing a dance performance can leave me feeling alienated and confused.
