Dance 2103 - 16 October 2020
5:54 p.m., International University Campus, Paris 14.
Since Wednesday, the rules in force for dance lessons have tightened: compulsory mask, physical distancing, no work on the ground. In short, the opposite of what dance implies in terms of its relationship to the body, to sensations, to the Earth, to the world and to others. There comes a time when adaptation to circumstances is no longer just adaptation; it profoundly distorts the practice. I teach while respecting the instructions, but I wonder about the meaning of all this. It’s not the virus that worries me the most.
