By Neta Pulvermacher: A Choreographer, Founder of the A.W.A.R.D Show! Series (2006) and Dance Conversations at the Flea (2003).
Ok... People (artists and audiences), Chill out! I am reading all those comments about the A.W.A.R.D. Show! Let me put my two cents into the discussion.... and, by the way... discussion/response/action/pro-action are actually the goals of this series... So thank you... for participating. It is Neta Pulvermacher here, the very dumb, super populist choreographer (ha, ha, ha if you only knew) who started this whole thing, with the idea that it may - if handled right - put to test some of the most hypocritical, yet, sacred cows in our improvished modern dance field and if done right - I was hoping that it will in-fact create new possibilities, attract new funding for individual artists, and will put the conversation back into the work itself. That is my dream. I want people to feel excited about the work itself. No it is not the only way. No, no, no!!!! There is NEVER ONE WAY TO DO SOMETHING! Never!
