DANCE IS: A conversation between music (or silence) and the body’s movement (or stillness). Sometimes it is an argument, sometimes it is a debate, sometimes it is an abusive relationship. At its most interesting, it is a question, or a series of questions that build on each other. It is a place for space and weight and rhythm to do exciting things.
