It is no longer a question:
Society would be better if we danced everyday.
Dance is not ephemeral. It is the living, breathing, pulsing, sweaty proof of what makes us essentially human. Its embodied knowledge brings activation and engagement of our most fundamental human skills.
““Other than gaining agency…the dancing body therefore becomes a supplement for the political struggle in both mobilizing its forces and alleviating its inevitable failures and grievances by enjoyment.”
“New metaphors have the power to create a new reality. This can begin to happen when we start to comprehend our experience in terms of a metaphor, and it becomes a deeper reality when we begin to act in terms of it.”
