FEB 24, THU 7:30PM

Much of contemporary dance in the Bay Area continues to be presented Thursday through Saturday at 8pm in traditional venues, following in the patterns of many other performance art forms. Distance is often created between Contemporary Dance and popular culture, and the pervading opinion is that to be considered legitimate, a work must have certain presentational aspects, be associated with certain venues, subscribe to particular codes of relating to audience, etc. Is this path to legitimacy still relevant, and is it helping/hurting the form?
