I think that someone once said, with modern dance, either you like it or you don’t. I find that is definitely true for me– either I get it or it is just too obtuse or esoteric for me. I wanted to share a video that I came across with excerpts of a performance of “Trio Istallazione” by Italian group Perypezye Urbane.

I really like the kinetic qualities of it, and the way the three dancers work off each other and also in unison. The awareness and feeling among the dancers is tangible. The effective use of the transparent sheet to add movement and interact with the dancers is haunting and beautiful. One reason this video works for me is that the video itself is so well done and a work of art in itself. It’s incredible how dance can really get at deep emotions, concepts and feelings that we are not able to express quite the same in any other way. In short, I get it, and I like it.
