Aha! I've been following this discussion with some interest--finally have
something definite to say, or anyway a referral. I recently wrote an article
based in an interview with someone who had studied Loie Fuller, a dancer at
the end of 19th/beginning of 20th C. swho was an innovator in lighting
technologies. It's the April version of the "Dance Views" section of
DanceOnline (@ www.danceonline.com). I think it addresses some of the very
issues you've been bringing up here.
Take a look, tell me what you think.
