In 2004 I began writing for Criticaldance, a dance specialist website. Criticaldance offered me the possibility to review all kinds of dance and also to interview dance professionals.

My first review for Criticaldance was awarded the Dance Umbrella Prize and it was written after a performance of Mark Morris's
The Hard Nut at Sadler's Wells Theatre in London

Mark Morris's Hard Nut 2004

There followed many other collaborations, of which you will find links below. Perhaps some highlights of my work for Criticaldance were the possibility to attend the Bournonville Festival in Copenhagen in 2005, the coordination of a feature on dance and disability, a long and most enjoyable interview with David McAllister, director of the Australian Ballet, my discovery of Zoonation and the work of the great James Thiérrée.
