> dance & Futurism, then & now

the dance is performed from two images -

one is a dancer in the desert/dunes, all today's knowledge absorbed and available,
dancing in the future and towards the future ...

the second is a discarded clown-figure, a style grown old, beyond itself,
grotesque, a-temporal, empty, imitating clichés and expressions of the past in a machine-like alienated way (quoting subconsciously from Martha Graham's "Lamentation")
creating an almost Butoh-like performance
