interesting take on 2011 A.W.A.R.D.s

by ashleyandersondances

in our most recent learning to loveDANCEmore, MANIFESTO, board president Ishmael Houston-Jones interrogated the ideas behind competitive dance events in his article, Dance. Eats. Money. 

other artists took the issue in different ways throughout the issue, including Juan Aldape’s review of the Sugar Show and Brittany Reese’s commentary about hosting the Sugar Show (an A.W.A.R.D. show offspring)

the 2011 series already took place in cities across the country with Helen Simoneau winning 10K in NY and now the Philadelphia shows completed. the Broad Street Review (article linked below) took particular interest in one of the entries which spoofed the entire production.
