TEDGlobal 2012 Wayne McGregor

sense of my own body in the real world

know where end of fingers are when you reach out

only think about that when things are wrong

i.e. broken arm

3 ways (dances) of physical thinking

not have anything pre-planned

it's about how they grasp information

and use it

Firstly the TED logo

direct transformation of energie from my body

I see a letter T in front of me

describe the T of 'TED' with physical movement

dancers behind are going to interpret my imaginations

'Exploring the space of the T' (by dancing)

generating beginnings of a phrase

some dancers remember dancing by the energie involved

2 duet 'architectual objects'

Performance of a dance together

3 method test space method

'mental dance' in minute

do it yourself in your mind

If you reach out (with arm), think where it would be

mental picture

'World premiere of TED dance'


hope you make a dance for yourself

or else: misbehave more beautifully!
