The Dartington Summer School is very important - but still rooted in the
"School" environment - and so it should be. If Digital Dancing is about
"schooling" then it is about the radical redefinition of what we mean by
"school" and what we do in it. I am not convinced (and this is based on
both awareness of and respect for Shinkansen's work) that we share our
central mission at all nor do I think that we provide the same milieu -
although I do think that we complement each other and as such are important
pieces in a bigger puzzle.
