Comments on: Phase three ends Dancing in a shaking world Wed, 18 Nov 2009 16:31:15 +0000 hourly 1 By: Hilary Goodall Hilary Goodall Mon, 28 Sep 2009 10:30:09 +0000 Chris,

This reminded me of the conversation we had about ‘urban’ audiences in London being possibly less able to ‘enjoy/appreciate’ the rural obsession I always wanted to bring into my work! Seems to be a similar experience in what you are saying with your Chinese colleague.

Also reminds me of the work I did on perception – that we will always try very hard to ‘make sense’ of what we see in dance or art – despite the visual image (or movement) being obscure or unfamiliar. With no aural guidance, we seem to subconsciously revert back to finding links with something we already know in our past/culture/experience. I made a possible link with our ancestors always needing to quickly make sense of what they saw – in that it could present danger.

I’m enjoying the blog. Thank you. Hilary
