Even to this very day, you’re still a fetus at heart. You’re a fetus trying to dance. That’s why I say that you are a fetus. Though as yet without eyes to see with, you will soon come to see what so far has been invisible. But what a world awaits you beyond the womb! … Movement is born of life’s breath. Don’t be shackled by conventions; just let go of yourself. Cry out; even groan if you feel like it. …What I want to see, though, is a dance in which you give birth to what’s alive inside of you.
