The Stranger previews The A.W.A.R.D. Show! Dec 10, 2009

Brendan Kiley wrote up a preview of The A.W.A.R.D. Show! on the Slog:

You'd think the idea would sell itself: Four grants, $10,000 each, given to dance companies in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Seattle based on audience votes during a weekend-long showcase/competition. Local dance geeks get a tour of new work by knowns and unknowns; dancers get publicity and money. Everybody wins. Right? But The A.W.A.R.D. Show!, coming to On the Boards this weekend, has got people all riled up.

Preview of The A.WA.R.D. Show! on Seattle Met's site Dec 9, 2009

Seattle Met's Culture Fiend blog features a preview of The A.W.A.R.D. Show! by Jean Lenihan.

Art for art’s sake is great, but money talks. This weekend, On the Boards teams with New York City’s Joyce Theater to present the first-ever Seattle A.W.A.R.D. Show —a four-night dance competition (Dec 10-13) that originated at the Joyce and will leave one lucky Northwest choreographer $10,000 richer.

Seattle Times previews The A.W.A.R.D. Show! Dec 8, 2009

Michael Upchurch of the Seattle Times explains the background of The A.W.A.R.D. Show!, the experience in other cities and interviews Linda Shelton of The Joyce Theater. She responded to a question about the competitive nature of the program with the following:

Shelton's feeling was that everything choreographers do, every grant they apply for, is a competition. "This is just more transparent," she says. "You're being judged on your work, not on how well you write a grant application."
