I just think dance is really relevant. You're able to work with a complexity that you could never do if you were working with images or texts alone. I mean you can work with sensation and you can work with abstraction, entering many physical worlds, or even the way we perceive how we are human, how we're alive or how…Is this my body? Why am I moving? Who is moving whom? There's a complexity that's hard to articulate in words.
Meg Stuart (Jonathan Burrows, Interview with Meg Stuart, Luna Café, Brussels, March 12th 1998)
There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.
(John Cage, Silence: Lectures and Writings; Published June 1st 1961 by Wesleya)
Exposing Western Hypocrisy - how much more exposed can they be? Which decent human being on earth harbors any illusions about it? These are people whose histories are spongy with the blood of others. Colonialism, apartheid, slavery, ethnic cleansing, germ warfare, chemical weapons - they virtually invented it all.”
