Dance Theater Workshop

Working as press representative at the Dance Theater Workshop for two years meant working with a whole slew of exciting, experimental artists rife with new ideas, selected by DTW’s then-artistic director Cathy Edwards. It was a fun time, most especially because the work called on our creativity to find new ways to give visibility to generally less visible, media-resistant artists. In addition to the conventional outlets—The New York Times (over fourteen advance stories each year, not counting reviews) as well as pieces in Wall Street Journal, Daily News, Newsday–we called upon the ethnic press—Telemundo TV, Las Noticias TV, China Daily, The Forward, Irish Echo. And they responded. The year-end publicity reports were as thick as the Manhattan White Pages (Remember them?).
