Rachel Howards addresses a trend at SF's recent Summerfest/dance: speech. From her SF Weekly article titled "Shut Up and Dance":<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>You have to wonder whether dance theater auteur Joe Goode ever cringes at the epidemic of text-in-dance his success has set off in the Bay Area. Everywhere you turned during the ninth annual Summerfest/dance series, dancers just couldn't keep their mouths shut. Nearly a full third of the 31 pieces to appear in this year's festival featured dancers chatting, their banter frequently distracting from the many genuine moments of glory in the works of less verbose peers.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://www.sfweekly.com/issues/2000-08-16/dance.html" TARGET=_blank>Read the full article</A></B><P>Quite interesting considering that I remember one critic saying, "It ain't dance if they talk" or something to that effect.
