The Interval Between…The Space Between…: Concepts of Time and Space in Asian Art and Performance
Stock, Cheryl F. (2005) The Interval Between…The Space Between…: Concepts of Time and Space in Asian Art and Performance. In Sarkar Munsi, Urmimala (Ed.) Time and Space in Asian context: Contemporary Dance in Asia. World Dance Alliance, pp. 17-38.
Whilst time and space are common to all human experience, our perceptions of time and space are shaped by our world views and philosophies. Definitions of time normally differentiate between abstract and concrete concepts. Space, like time, can be viewed from many perspectives. Whilst all of us experience time and space through bodily sensations, it is the art form of dance that lays claim to a particular and intense relationship between these elements. Whilst dance definitions are always hotly contested, few would argue that in its most elemental sense dance consists of the body moving through time and space. Notions of metaphysical and cosmic time and space are commonly found throughout the world, particularly in major Asian philosophical and religious traditions.
