Choregraphers Amy O'Neal and Crystal Pite both make an appearance in the September's Dance Magazine. O'Neal's Opposing Forces is singled out as one of fall's must-see dance performances; while Pite talks about stretching the bounds of dance vocabulary in a piece about contemporary ballet.
Bonus: Dance Magazine editor-at-large Wendy Perron had a hand in both these articles. Perron was last seen in the OtB lobby last spring, on a book tour with Through the Eyes of a Dancer.
