DTWS The Nothing Festival: Not MuchBy Krista Miranda
The Nothing Festival at Dance Theater Workshop this April was intended to be an artistic oasis stripped from marketing, fundraising, and production challenges, where choreographers presented works created from nothing. The result of the first of the two-week festival, however, was reminiscent of a student choreographic workshop.

Undergraduate performances are not always appropriate for the critical eye, but a performance of dance works set on undergrads by well-known choreographers certainly is. With sophisticated and pleasing results, Yanira Castro, Ivy Baldwin and Daniel Gwirtzman created new pieces for Barnard University students this April for a concert dubbed Tharp/Sugar Salon/Gwirtzman.
