Why in 80% of contemporary dance performances, dancers move in what appears to be a sort of "slow motion"?? is it because the thing is considered too new for our minds, and the choreographer think we are incapable of appreciating the complexity of their work? Do they think million of years of evolution failed in making us capable of grasping subtleties of motion at normal speed? To make us appreciate it better as sculptures in time? Or is a limitation in the communication between dancer and choreographer? In both cases: pathetic. Speed is an amazing trick in itself and should be fully exploited.
