why dance matters now

Critical Path in Sydney was partnered by Delving into Dance for their Digital Interchange Festival 2019-2020.

They did a call for interest in developing a response to the idea of why dance matters now.

Shaun McLeod and I had just finished some time together working and dancing togother. We ended up calling this work Currency of Play. We applied (in fact, Shaun applied) to be part of why dance matters now and, well, here’s the main page for the selected texts:

And here’s our contribution:
