Experienced dancer and choreographer Laurie discusses modern and postmodern dance, asks “what is dance?”, and goes deeply into the philosophy of movement and the mind-body connection. He discusses Leonardo da Vinci’s view of movement as expression, TS Elliot, intuition, self-authoring vs. entropy in embodiment and the trap of form. A profound existential dive!
