The dancing body is not one that grows solo. It feeds off those around it, consciously and subconsciously, in a pinpoint moment in time and across expanded duration. Both through and with language, learnings accumulate within the body, within the spaces it occupies and in the archive of memory.
...and the dancing body is a tool acquired by Dance itself.
Dance wears us, like a costume.
