Abstract

In dancing as in life in general, we are all sharing the same air. We encounter each other through sharing breaths (listening, tuning and calibrating) in an atmosphere of airs that can never be fully appropriated. This shared condition is what makes us human and vulnerable. How might it also provide the ground for a practical philosophy for enacting a dance politics?
