If Tate Modern was Musee de la danse

Musee de la danse notes:

  • Choreographer boris charmatz invited to tate, asks question: if tate modern was musee de la danse? About the practice of museums and dance, not just a case of bringing dance into the gallery
  • Moveable, changing space, crowd moved with the dancer. The staff moved bits of stage/set up whilst the dance was happening, there was no break, revealed the structure of the museum/display which became part of the piece.
  • Good atmosphere – people talked and moved, not the same kind of detachedness and reverence that you usually feel in a gallery
  • I feel like the piece had a real effect on me and how I felt in my body afterwards: more aware of the way I move and my body in space.
