Between Theatre And Dance

“In theater, there has been a movement in recent decades away from word-driven narrative. Theater today – interesting theater, not formulaic Broadway commerciality – is as much about movement and image and multimedia and even song as the actorly articulation of text. Not that words still aren’t central to the art, but they’ve lost their arrogant monopoly. In dance, we live in a time of worldwide reaction against the excesses of pure abstraction.”
