ABSTRACT
The author offers her view on movement and discusses her dilemma when she was asked to create movement. She was a former dancer and believed that movement is made only in studios. Moreover, she learned that shaping the movement is based on the imagined world. After retiring from dancing, she was once asked to invent movement and reasons to move.
