The primitive being, when he took a glimpse at death, started his career as a man. The new reality was too painful, so he sought out to appease the psychic twinge. Since he could not escape this terrible new found worldview that was beginning to transform the world, he had to invent and create. Arts begin. The first one (music) arises from the repetition of primal rhythm, percussion imitating the birth land of Mother Nature. With drums and, later, flutes, dancing will commence. Soon singing sculpture and painting appeared in an unsuccessful attempt to appease the wrath of the gods. It will take time for word to be molded to the explosion of literature, while the seventh art (cinema) will have to wait thousands of years.
But remember, man begins to express joy, sorrow, excitement, hope and desire with early derived dances with different folk rhythms that changed, in another twist into classical ballet. While dancing, ceremonies associated with sacred dyes, has been around since the birth of humanity, it was not until the early twentieth century that an epistemology has been created around it . The original dance had a specific purpose and was used both for rejoicing and for offerings to the Gods. In the nineteenth century, dance is no longer just an approach to life, it becomes art, and therefore opens its doors to unknown realities. Isadora Duncan (“My art is simply an effort to express with gestures and movements the truth of my being,” she said on occasion) or Nijinsky flag this new way to face dance.
So what is that presented at the Centre Pompidou? Well, up until late April 2012, the Paris museum performs an exhibit based on the interaction of dance (as a volatile and immaterial art ) and the visual arts (permanent and fixed). The organizers want to go further and present a series of performances based, too, in this interplay between dance movement and the stat-ism of a picture. Artists in the exhibition as could nnot be otherwise, are among the best Although the list is long we can not fail to mention here the names of the most distinguished pointers: Constantin Brancusi, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Alexander Calder, Merce Cunningham, Sonia Delaunay, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Man Ray, Vassily Kandinsky, Auguste Rodin and many others nurtured the most international avant-garde style. This is, undoubtedly, an important signal that is further enhanced, as is normal at the Pompidou, with interesting side events.
