World Order: Mind ShiftPosted: February 21, 2012
I saw this video quite some time ago, forgot all about it, and then was just reminded of it recently. It’s Japanese martial artist (and all-around Renaissance man, apparently) Genki Sudo dancing to his own music. It is just ridiculously happy-making.
Ah, I love dance! This is dance doing the very best thing dance can do: giving us new insight into a piece of music, into the human body’s context within the world, and into the capabilities and meanings of the human body itself.
This has so many contrasting layers, man and machine, uniqueness and universality, emotion and impassivity. Even just fast and slow. I come away with new understandings and new respect every time I watch this.
