well brad,

thats an odd question. Rather a famous example from, I believe, Charles
Weidman, was a solo in which he turned his head slowly from one side to
other. Once I think. I have to really think back to remember the story.
It was probably performed back in the 50s. William Bales used to tell the
story.

But a singular pose? sure. many times over. you know although dance is an
art of movement, even to hold still is moving. to be alive is to be in motion.

Douglas Dunn in New York has made a number of pieces in which the performers
do not move. Very nice work, I might add.

We, Palindrome, is rehearsing at the moment, "Minotaur". A piece in which
cameras and computers generate sound from the dancers movements. but to be
quite precise, it is not the movement which triggers the sound, but the
changes in position. This is not quite the same thing.

gotta stop here. quite pooped.
