Ohad Naharin's advice to critics Dec 21, 2009
Earlier this month dance maven Ohad Naharin issued some advice to dance critics in an award acceptance speech. Since there was so much conversation during The A.W.A.R.D. Show! about the critical voice and lens, it seemed worth it to repost some of it here:
- Go see dance shows that you don’t have to write about.
- Don’t let a point of reference prevent you from having a moment of a fresh new experience.
- Connect to physical pleasures of life.
- Remember that there are always people in the audience who are at least as smart as you are (and it says here, especially if you are from England).
