Leslie,

thanks for writing.
yes, THEORETICALLY it is not hard to see how LF could be useful to a
choreographer. my question is, in teh real world, what choreographers have
found this to be true . I.E. use it with any consistency, or even
occaisionally in toward this end (note my comment about Merce's use of LF).
i do not ask the question rhetorically, that is, i could well believe there
are some out there.
i just haven't met any, and, as i said, from my own experience, have trouble
to see much value for the tool in this application.

are you a choreographer? what are your experiences?
