Abstract of the lecture
To dance is above all to communicate, to unite, to join together, and to touch others on a fundamental level of existence. Dance is union; union of one human being with another, one person with the cosmos, one human being with God. The spoken language remains within the dominance of delusion. Words, although seemingly easy to comprehend, can hide images that deceive and lead us into a never ending labyrinth of Babel-like semantics. Extended conversation more often leads to argument than to concord among people.
To dance is also to speak the language of animals, to communicate with stones, to understand the song of the sea and the message in the wind, to discover with the stars, to approach the heights of existence itself. To dance is to transcend our poor human condition and to join fully Man, at the dawn of any civilization, furiously beat the ground with his bare feet. Rhythm came to life, then sound and space, and trance. In the union with invisible forces, the Dance is born.
