Dancing is dangerous, it threatens the system, it complicates the situation. Dance makes the hegemonic ways of being uncomfortable, affects, dislocates and complicates. Dance, contagious and invasive, destabilizes the logics of the word, threatens the normative language. Dancing can be an epidemic. This dancer has no magic tricks ready. Her choreographic material is coarse and sometimes incomprehensible, she fails in the turns with the left leg. This dancer never wanted to be Giselle. With all of us: a body in rebellion, crossed, revolted, the non-normative dancer, the fakir dancer, the thaumaturge, the subaltern. Ways of being that complicate. Active invisibility strategies or dissident identities. Life crossed. Bastard fiction. Ability to imagine. Difficult wandering with an appearance of depth.
