Dance Criticism: The Criticism of Crisis
The text “Dance Criticism: The Criticism of Crisis” thinks about the situation and role of dance criticism. The initial thesis of the text concerns itself with the misguidedness of dance criticism, which does not recognize the fact that contemporary dance is in crisis, but rather treats its subject as given. The text suspects that dance criticism – despite clear evidence of its confusion – still knows what dance is. Simultaneously, the text battles against the view that dance criticism should report on the quality of performances. It attempts to lay this view to rest and develops a different perspective, elevating dance criticism as the companion of the historical moment, the philosophical co-traveller of dance. The author hopes for different, dialectical and slippery critical forms and content.
