I don’t have any goal when I dance. I start from scratch, that is to say from everything and nothing. The possibilities, the ideas, present themselves from anywhere, and we take off. All that remains is to make choices. The course of action is in perpetual flux between the goal and the path, at the mercy of the unknown.
