Dance for Nothing

Eszter Salamon


 In Dance for Nothing, Eszer Salamon performs John Cage’s music, Lecture on Nothing (41:05 min) and simultaneously dances with the aim of creating choreography to be juxtaposed to the text piece. The idea of using music done by words and performing a parallel action as another temporality follows the desire for interaction with non-interference. “The dance in Dance for Nothing should be autonomous and never become an illustration or a commentary on the text.” (eszter salamon)
