Pilobolus Suffers Bitter Breach Over Rights to Choreography
by DANIEL J. WAKIN for the New York Times

Ms. Chase said that she was cast out by a new, corporate-minded executive director and board after three decades of service, and was denied ownership of the dances she created. “It was artistic differences and sort of a mean-spirited power grab by the board,” Ms. Chase added.

...

“There certainly was never a desire on the part of the company to drive Alison out,” Mr. Kubovy said. “We worked long and hard to keep Alison with us.”

Oh dear! This sort of dispute is always a shame, but particularly when it is a company that has done so much to popularise dance. I remember taking a non-dance fan to see Pilobolus and she said that it was the best theatre experience of her life.

The message for all choreographers is clear: make sure that your rights or otherwise to your work are clearly established.
