Deirdre Kelly reports in the Jan 13th <A HREF="http://www.globeandmail.com" TARGET=_blank>Globe & Mail</A> on the growing trend of contemporary dancers who don't fit the traditional mold of what we expect a dancer to be.<BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>"The more radical choreographers working today, among them New York's Bill T. Jones and England's DV8 Physical Theatre are creating dances for people in wheelchairs and with cerebral palsy, with AIDS and obesity. These aren't freak shows. The new choreography is exploring alternate ways of moving and so also features able-bodied performers who are risk-takers in their own right -- rock climbers, for instance, who incorporate structured, rhythmic movement into their gravity-defying aerial moves."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR><a href="http://archives.theglobeandmail.com/s97is.vts?action=View&VdkVgwKey=%2Fhome6%2Fusr%2Flocal%2Fgam%2Fsearch%2Fhtml%2F20010113%2FSADANC%2Ehtml&DocOffset=6&DocsFound=69&QueryZip= dance&Collection=TGAM&SortField=sortdate&ViewTemplate=GAMDocView%2Ehts&SearchUrl=http%3A%2F%2Farchives%2Etheglobeandmail%2Ecom%2Fs97is%2Evts%3FQueryZip%3Ddance%26ResultTemplate%3DG AMResults%252Ehts%26QueryText%3Ddance%26Collection%3DTGAM%26SortField%3Dsortdate%26ViewTemplate%3DGAMDocView%252Ehts%26ResultStart%3D1%26ResultCount%3D10&" target="blank">more...</a><P><p>[This message has been edited by Marie (edited January 14, 2001).]

The link doesn't work for me Marie. It's the old Globe and Mail problem.

Netscape Navigator has a problem with the Globe, IE is fine. If you use Netscape do a search on the <A HREF="http://www.globeandmail.com" TARGET=_blank>Globe site</A> under "Extreme Dance".
