An interesting interview, because Meisner only enjoys some of Brandstrup's work and has some harsh words as well as praise:<P><B>Bring out the The Arts</B><BR>Brandstrup Kim Brandstrup's award-winning Arc Dance Company has returned from the brink of bankruptcy. Nadine Meisner in The Independent wants to know what brings the Danish choreographer such popular acclaim. <BR> <P>Kim Brandstrup is a courteous fellow. Being a Dane, he may well have inflammable Viking blood pulsing through his veins; while being a choreographer, he must feel a certain sensitivity about his work. But he doesn't lean over to ram my cup of cappuccino down my throat, which he might have, given that I've assiduously trashed his work in my reviews.<P>He sits looking smilingly gentle and diffident and in need of a shave. He is something of a human hulk, but he speaks in such a husky whisper that I worry the cassette recorder isn't picking up his words above the hiss of the coffee machine. He'd probably be the first to say he doesn't have a dancer's body, but then he never aimed to become a dancer. He came to dance late, the best known fact about him being that he arrived (in 1980) at the London School of Contemporary Dance after studying film at the University of Copenhagen.<P><A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=020315001093&query=ballet" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A>
