Description Forewords of the choreographer in the handbill: "In the work sense I'm trying to touch the premiss of embodied cognitive science that the mind and conceptual thought are inherently embodied. The embodied mind can be seen in language in thousands of primary metaphors like 'knowing is seeing', 'thinking is moving', 'vertical position is ability'.
sense deals with the possibility that thinking and sensing are inseparable, that the locus of reason would be the same as locus of perception and motor control. The work includes scenes with sense, nonsense, sensuality and sensing and all this at the same time."
