“Everybody is challenged on his or her own level of experience and is treated equally. In that way a big or small movement is relative to the person, and everybody can translate a movement of another body into his or her own cells. And the more varied the bodies and experiences the more exciting and rich the kinds of possibilities. With that understanding a wheelchair is no longer a symbol of being disabled; instead it widens the movement possibilities and adds new chapters in the language of dance: a woman choreographing with her eyes, a man dancing with his walking sticks, etc.”
