Hi Lester
Amanda & I just working on a new project "switch bitch" that relates to
questions around electricity - on/off switches, which also of course
applies in the digital world. A question that surely could be posed is
whether electricity as such has changed the expression language
specifically applied by dancers and movement workers. Any comments? btw it
wasn't edison who first tamed electricity, but leyden in his jars wasn't it?
