Dancing is an experience that doesn’t want to be told. It undoes the world of words with gestures. To remember it we have to get back to dancing. Yet there is an intimate relationship between language and dancing: our gestures and words are never quite our own. Inspired by music “edits” as a methodology,Edit proposes different versions of the same track to create a sequence of written remixes where each text reworks the previous one and anticipates the next. By incorporating the logic of dancing into language, Edit is also a account of shared gestures that reassemble stories of anonymous dancing bodies. In a similar way to how the same body can be (con)moved by different music scenes, Edit goes through language looking for the ” accessible, skin-deep and sensory” of music in words.
