Dance Theater Workshop Names Carla Peterson Artistic Director more...
by DANIEL J. WAKIN for the New York Times
“We’re not twins, but somehow this sort of dance has been happening,” Ms. Peterson said. “We’re very different people, but we have very similar commitments to the really important role of artists in culture and the real necessity for institutions and organizations to put resources behind their ability to transform their ideas into action.”
Ms. Peterson, 58, indicated that she would hew to her predecessor’s direction: promoting nonlinear, movement-based works over more narrative, theatrical presentations, and striving to support not just young innovators but also choreographers in their 50’s and 60’s who continue to generate fresh ideas.
