...heady list of artistic advisers Mr. Baryshnikov has assembled - people like Pedro Almodóvar, Pina Bausch, Trisha Brown, William Forsythe, Gidon Kremer, Mark Morris, David Salle, Peter Sellars and Sam Shepard.
There is a $7 million goal for the center's portion of the building. Kick-started by a $1 million donation from Mr. Baryshnikov, the campaign has reached $6 million.
Gosh! That is a heady list indeed, including some of my favourite artists from a range of disciplines. The cash side is also impressive, including the $1m from Mr Baryshnikov. What a shining example he is of the truly eclectic nature of dance and the arts in general and one of many counter-examples for those who seek to isolate ballet from the rest of dance. Doubtless, however, the usual suspects will take no notice.
