“These cultural forms that have a certain nostalgia to them, the conversation tends to be moreabout capture than it is about expression necessarily.” — @modhaliwal [0:18:22]
“Because I’m between disciplines, in some ways it’s been important for me to look at the inbetween spaces where we try to define parameters around discipline or form or expectation.” —Freya Björg Olafson [0:20:15]“I like to provoke reflections on our understanding of disciplinary forms.” — Freya Björg Olafson[0:20:59]
“It tends to be the middle-class that has the socio-economic flexibility to be able to absorb thesedance forms, document them, do things with them and then go and turn it into a commercialproperty.” — @modhaliwal [0:26:26]
“One of the things that allows a possibility for the appearance of me doing more in some waysthan I might actually be doing, is in fact technology.” — Freya Björg Olafson [0:27:52]“Digital tools to interface and generate and engage and shift how we create and experiencechoreography is a wonderful area to explore because it offers more possibilities for viewers tointersect and experience work.” — Freya Björg Olafson [0:31:27]
“I would love for people to start seeing dance as not being something that is performed for youand we’re just passive observers but it’s something that is a language.
