Welcome to my new blog created by Doug Fox and designed by Joan Greenfield. I want to make dance a part of the larger conversation. I’m interested in how moving arts, physicality and sensuality relate to environmental issues, social policy, economics and history. The current financial crisis has given us a huge opportunity, individually and collectively, to re-prioritize and shift direction. I can feel the thinking changing, and fast. As a life-long urban dweller, dancer, art-maker, reader and writer, I’ve got things to say about where we are heading. A little perspective, the 1930s and the 1970s may have been tough times, but for the arts these periods of crisis were also fertile and transformative. Let’s see what we can make out of now. Stay tuned!
