commitment. the word that came to mind when i started watching this Kool: Dancing in My Mind, Robert Wilson's homage to Japanese dancer and choreographer, Suzushi Hanayagi. it also came to mind what the best people who have taught me all said - when you move, move like you mean it and know why you mean it and where you came from.
