NO ONE WANTS TO BE DEFEATED, 2015
dance fills the body and the body contains it and overflows. a danceless body is a docile body. to persist in dance is to be undefeated. dance is a threat. dance cannot be edited or assimilated. in dance the body eroticizes its passage through ambient media. all bids at control include a stifling of the dance, either by refuting it or by scripting it. normativity’s regime invites its adherent to live without dancing, or to imitate another’s dance. both of these tasks are impossible. cease and desist from enforced stillness, allow the dance, be not defeated.
