The performative civilisation of European origin suffers from the division between theatre and dance, almost as though these were different universes of expression. They are, in fact, a single world which develops into distinct genres and yet is rooted in the experience of how to let the performer's body-mind become scenically present.

Instead of "theatre" and "dance", we can talk of "deep dance" and "evident dance". "Deep dance" is typical of the scenic forms which do not appear to be danced; "evident dance" sometimes separates itself from every mimetic or narrative criterion in order to present itself as a pure expression of physical dynamism.
All performance, however, is dance at its physical and mental roots. A dance of energy and thought.
