The Dance of Existing

by Vera Mantero, 1995

A dance of adequacy. Adjusting to a space, to adjust to an existence.
The dance of the concrete. A dance of what it is not articulated in words.
A dance on being here, just being. The dance of the impossible, of what it is. A dance on the pleasure of the absolute strictness between space and time. The dance that wants to know how it is to be in fact open.
The dance of the deep pleasure to be on stage (Oh dammit! How lucky I am!). A dance of silence.
