Nouvelles de danse no. 23: Writing about dance
“At the very moment when we are reflecting, when we are looking for ways to approach this delicate question of transposing the gaze to the written word, from movement to word, critics are writing, sometimes clairvoyant, sometimes blind, as if faced with the unspeakable, language were stumbling, shutting down, giving up. Why is this feeling of incomprehension not followed by a dialogue with the artist, an attempt at elucidation?
Moreover, isn’t there also, on the choreographer’s side, a missing communication, whether in the work or in the discourse that accompanies it?”
Excerpt of Patricia Kuypers‘ editorial note.
