Extra, 4-1: Wise Moves
O'Connor, Replacing Rockwell at Times, Names Acocella Deputy; Gia
ousts Jowitt; Croce Returns to New Yorker to not Review Dance
By Fou-Fou d'Avril
NEW YORK -- In a flurry
of stunning developments more akin to Spring Training wheeling and
dealing than the often immovable circle of dance critics, the New
York Times Friday replaced chief dance critic John Rockwell with
chief dance critic critic Tere O'Connor, who immediately hired Joan
Acocella as his deputy, reportedly greeting her with "Joan, you
ignorant slut" before sentencing -- er, assigning her to watch his
rehearsals for a year before putting another pen to paper. Ousted
Times writer Gia "Heathers" Kourlas immediately convinced
Village Voice editor Donald Forced to hire her to replace Deboarah
Jowitt, promising to concentrate ''less on dance criticism, and
more on dance gossip," which apparently pleased the Voice editor
as better conforming with the weekly's current trend. "Deborah's
too earnest anyway," said Forced. For his part, Times publisher
Arthur "Punchy" Sulzberger named Rockwell special correspondent
for Eurotrash, explaining, "American dance is too earnest for John
anyway." At the now Acocella-less New Yorker, editor David Remnant
called eminent critic Arlene Croce out of retirement for one assignment,
"Why I won't review Dance," which, Remnant pointed out, would eliminate
the need for any future dance criticism at the New Yorker. "Choreographers
don't appreciate good reviews anyway, so why should we bother?"
Remnant commented early Saturday morning, not without reason, before
darting out the door for the magazine's annual April Fool's party.
