Quotation of the Day

“I think, when I really get down to it, when I pare away all the trappings and masks and frills of the form, I think it is about something none of the photos or the videos or the texts that are published here can reveal: changing the energy in the space…Eventually the space is changed. It is not about whether people feel better. It is not about how my foot is pointed or my arm is curved. It is about what invisible thing we can make happen together. We claim the space, like reclaimed land, and make something happen in it.”

-Jill Sigman, on defining choreography
