Originally published from 1989 to 1996, Dance Ink was a maverick in the world of independent publishing, a performing arts journal that documented its community through the lens of new dance works commissioned specifically for the magazine. The pioneering quarterly has relaunched with the help of New York–based design firm Pentagram, its revival inspired by a new generation of dancers and performers and the resurgence in independent print media.

Charming iPad App Lets You Choreograph a Famed Dance Genius | Wired Design | Wired.com

Wired likes DOT DOT DOT. "Instead of viewing the proceedings from a single, fixed point, as we would in an auditorium, the app moves us through three distinct perspectives. The presentation is cleverly enticing...You’re not watching a contemporary dance routine; you’re playing with an app, and you love apps."

A new app, conceived by the famed J. Abbott Miller, plucks a renowned contemporary dancer from the stage and then gives you control of the action.

"FIFTH WALL explores the unique spatial, visual, and temporal conditions of the tablet, and its possibilities for choreography. The performance was created to embrace the multi-directional orientation and gravitational pull of the iPad. Viewers can focus on a single dance, or move, sort, and re-frame the performance, with touch."
