Movement

Again, and again I’m watching old recordings of Loie Fuller dancing. Her dancing postures were also captured by Samuel Joshua Beckett in a series of his photographs from ca.1900. By arranging and rearranging them in different order we can see Loie dancing again and again. The essence of dance is movement, and movement is the principal expression of life itself. We experience constant movement / changes in many ways, on all levels of our existence. Through the exploration of sound and movement and the study of change on different planes of life our awareness of time and space is built.
