Throughout my life I have used movement as a way to free myself. I am also very aware how movement has been used to take over and control the body.
For example think of watching soldiers marching together in formation, be it Hitler’s army or modern day North Korea. What is the effect of mechanized, repetitive movements on the body? Does this type of movement inhibit one’s feeling of individualization and freedom? Many of us believe it does.
