Kojo Nnamdi, a radio host on WAMU in Washington has done a nice report/interview with some great guests. I really enjoyed listening to this piece, although its such a stong issue it was hard for me not to have knee jerk reactions towards some of the things that were said. The interview includes a full array of perspectives as we hear from Sarah Kauffman Washington dance critic, two dancers Chip Coleman and Louis Torres, Alan Gordon AGMA’s exec director, and artistic director Septime Webre. I don’t want to spoil any parts of the interview so I wont say much about it. It is 26 min in length. you can visit the website, or go directly for the audio stream at Real Audo and Windows Media Player. I’d love to hear comments on your reaction to this.
