The only thing that is left in its wake is a memory. The dancing body is a sculpture of movement, a shaping of the space around us, a drawing of symbols, poetry in motion that shouts. Dancing connects the human form to other bodies, the thought with other thoughts, and the heart with other hearts, says choreographer Vladimir Angelov in this remarkable interview.
