Dance-haters of the Times: Letters from Ybned Niwde & Robert Yesselman
Ybned Niwde (a pseudonymn)
I hadn't read Gia Kourlas's
piece until you mentioned it in
the DI e-mail. I avoid the NYT at all costs and only glance at the
home page online once in a while, never clicking the "arts" link.
Thanks to the Giabeast
for providing the NYC dance community with its next weapon in the
ongoing Giahad. Can she have any idea how hated she is becoming?
What drives her?
I couldn't really read
the whole article either. Kind of like listening to Bush speak his
lies, you wonder to yourself, does anyone believe a word of this
tripe? Who could possibly respect her opinion enough to care what
she thinks about anything? But then, I think the same thoughts about
almost every other dance writer alive today.
And I wonder, where
is she getting her information? From advance videos sent to her
by the French? Or did Missy Miss have a continental vacation this
summer to see all the hot new Euroblab? Probably the NYT paid for
it, as they did for Fogwell to come over for his balletic education.
As GK believes NYC is
no longer the center of dance (and frankly, who cares for these
kinds of meaningless catch phrases except vapid trendspotters),
the NYT is no longer credible as a document of the arts.
Robert Yesselman, director of the trade organization Dance/NYC,
writes in part, in a letter to the New York Times a copy of which
was obtained by the Dance Insider:
.... It is unfortunate
at the least that the Times has a critic who now publicly announces
her distaste for the art she is responsible for reviewing.
