Dance Connections

Some things I've learned recently from Dance Movies and Tere O'Connor's Frozen Mommy:

  • A title can be a linguistic stepping stone from which a non-linguistic art journeys away from.
  • Art develops over time — including the time for the audience to resolve their impressions.
  • If music needs silence, dance needs stillness.
  • If music is what we hear as music, dance is simply movement we see as dance.
  • Sample-based music was preceded by sample-based dances.
There seems to be a connection between noise art and non-representative dance as well.
