merce cunningham on universality & distinction in human movement.
Movement is so much a part of our daily experience that we don’t even think of it as a thing. We don’t even think of it, we just sort of do it. But if you thought about it, say, how do you walk? I don’t mean just the mechanics, but if we all walked the same, why is it we all walk differently? And that struck me years ago, and I thought, well that was a way to think about movement: that we were doing the same thing, but we all did it differently. — Merce Cunningham
