On danse ?Sold by Mucem Museum
DescriptionWhat does it mean to dance? Do we need a specific gesture, a particular sequence or combination of gestures or movements? Does any gesture need to be repeated, reproducible, done by several people? Do we need music, a rhythm?
Modern and post-modern dance and contemporary dance have taught us that dance is not necessarily virtuoso. That very everyday gestures can 'make' dance.
Is dance then only a question of looking? What we decide to look at as dance is dance: a crowd in a city, a child taking its first steps, natural movements created by the wind, an animal moving, a repeated, repetitive movement...
The act of dancing is not only the prerogative of a stereotyped, trained, formatted and exercised body. The body would nevertheless be the primary tool.
