"The ground contributes to the dance as a form-finding element in the dancer's shape-shifting process, operating not as a stable entity but as an active determinant in the process. The ground is a compositional aspect of a dancer's movement, reconstituting the ways in which space-time potentializes the moving body and vice versa. The ground does not simply ground - it dances." - Erin Manning in Relationscapes
