Yes for challenging the meaning-making and the many ways it can affect one’s imagination. Yes for deepening into this zone of tension between cultural sensitivities and cultural expressions until the absurd. Yes for looking at the world as a world of island-island movements. Yes for using choreography applied to talks, words and social relations. Yes for practicing public, semi-private, domestic and micro dances.
