Valley Advocate: A Personal Response
film.valleyadvocate.com, 5 July 2001 [cached]
"You know when you have to buy a present for your best friend, and you find yourself buying something you love for yourself ... ." This is how Sali Ann Kriegsman, director of Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, describes the way she curated this season, the Pillow's 65th anniversary.
It is the strongest, most interesting Jacob's Pillow season in recent memory.It has its characteristic mix of various dance forms -- ballet, modern, postmodern, jazz, ethnic, avant garde -- and something more, something about the personal, about Kreigsman's personal and highly developed tastes and the fact that the forms themselves, though rooted in larger, shared traditions, have each been shaped individually by strong, idiosyncratic personalities.
Kriegsman, who for nine years was director of the Dance Program (now defunct) at the National Endowment for the Arts, has been everywhere, seen everything.This is her personal response to the state of the art.And contemporary dance, like so much of 20th century art, is marked by the artist's expressive fingerprints, posture, breath.
