So? Have you? Oh. Kay. You don't have to. Not everyone's a choreographer. Surgeon. Philosopher.

Contemplation's way alright, though. Sometimes, anyway. Forced contemplation, instead, sucks.

A certain inclination to forms cannot be denied with architectural birthday (40!) collective Coop Himmelb(l)au (who get most enchanted "when the qualities of space are linked, creating a rhythm of dynamism and concentration"), or fairtrading fashionistas Die Göttin des Glücks (who "only comes when she is in the mood", which of course provides her with an abundant yet deserved freedom compared to Santa Claus and all the other current public Christmas servants), but - apparently there are also dance newsletter subscribers actually interested in dance - especially not with Tanzplattform Deutschland 2008.

Ivana Müller, meanwhile, is no bore and shares her art within the artist collective LISA in Utrecht. These 2 have the details:

But! Always remember! "Only in painting you have no problems." (International Festival). Just to make sure that nobody complains afterwards about not having been informed.
