And when you do something like an arabesque (you know the iconic position with the leg up and back like this), I ask each dancer to interpret the arabesque so one does it on the floor, one is jumping, one is high, one is tilted, one is… you know. There is this kind of seeing each step not only from different angles but also from different levels and this just creates something. It’s very articulated and yet it’s very dense and cloudlike and it just somehow feels like a post-relativity quantum world. I mean, we no longer think that our solar system is the center of the universe and that everything runs like clockwork. We are just not in that reality anymore and … artists should take classicism and turn the dial slightly and reflect both knowledge and social habits and social ways of being and sexuality and all those things in new ways.
