Dance and Kinaesthetics

  • Rob Allen

We have a complex inner speech, which works when we act. When we are saturated and totally involved, then our ‘ancient literacy’ takes over. Dance and Kinaesthetics enable us to access our fundamental (physical) memory, give us the ability to conceive kaleidoscopically and simultaneously, in addition to perceiving in chronological order. Movement in time is now, intrinsically of the present, totally focused and interactive rather than historical contemplation.
