Danced Together is a survival guide for community because it is an operation manual for dancing... “If we come from different cultural and dance backgrounds, then what kind of space can formally allow us to dance with each other, without being as exclusive as a cypher or as pedestrian as a general dance floor?” -Vanessa Marian Dancing is a way of being oneself but also being a group. So we made a ritual so we can dance together without needing to have the same dance. To feel togetherness especially when we’re not the same. This is an instruction booklet, an operation manual, a hand book and a field guide for how we can dance together within a cosmopolitan and many-cultural reality where we no longer share a dance vocabulary with our neighbors. It hopes to be a step by step practise that will disintegrate otherness. It hopes to be a step by step practise that will deliver ones body back to them. It hopes that we can be danced together.
great dances 🕺
I’ve had some great dances with this book, and danced with people I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. It’s humbling and exciting that such skilled and talented people worked together to help make it 😊
