BONUS: Alastair Macaulay on his departure from the New York Times

Posted by on 09.21.2018

This week on ‘Conversations On Dance’, we are bringing you a┬áspecial bonus episode, with one of of most frequent guests, Alastair Macaulay. Today, Alastair has announced his decision to step down from his post as chief dance critic of the New York Times. In his years writing for the Times, Alastair’s reviews became events unto themselves, illuminating the performances he saw for many avid readers. Today we talk to Alastair about the artists whose performances most inspired him, courting controversy with ‘Sugarplumgate’, and what he’ll miss most about the job that made him a hugely important figure in the dance world.
