Deborah Jowitt does it again!

Cruising around the archives of Deborah Jowitt’s blog, “DanceBeat”, I came across a post from April 23rd of this year. The topic of “Should I or shouldn’t I include program notes?” is a dilemma of many a choreographer, and whether or not said notes are a help or a hindrance for the audience in deciphering a dance work prior to viewing. As always, Ms. Jowitt gives one much to ponder, while describing several dance works so beautifully. Worth a read, and perhaps even a comment or two!
