When Dance Became Movement, and Movement Became Material

Eva Karczag (2016)

 

“As eyes register movement, what a person sees is informed by the sensory awareness that his previous movements have helped him develop. He responds along the trajectories of attention that these previous movements have created. “

MOVEMENT BECOMES DANCE 

WHEN WE CONSIDER IT TO BE DANCE

some thoughts about movement

 

Movement has always excited and inspired us.

Moving brings us into a state of aliveness that connects us to the world we are part of.

Moving can engage both body and mind in a symbiotic relationship.

When we move, our thinking becomes clearer and more focused.

When moving, our receptiveness to our imagination grows.

Moving is one conduit that allows intuitive response to unfold.

Moving is a universal language.

“…I think of dance as much broader and deeper than professional dancer’s techniques. Human beings experience rhythmic movement in the womb, so we are born with an affinity for movement and a sense of rhythm ….

I like to think of all movement as dance or it could become that, if human beings could experience moving with a kind of sense of harmony.”
