Aesthetic Resistance to Gravity
Dance is the only physical art form and it has to be accessible to all.
Dance does not belong to the stage only. It belongs to nobody. It belongs to everybody.
Jazzo is not for those who know how to dance,
Jazzo is for those who love to dance.
I have a dream,
that I have found a solution
to make this world better.
Jews, Arab, Indian, Pakistani, Serb, Bosnian, and so on – hatred, violence, has been our lot for centuries. Unfortunately, more than ever, we are divided by nationalism and religious ideology.
Politicians and religious leaders have failed to create a bond that unites us.
Words are not enough. We need an activity. We need a communal activity. Dance is the solution. Science says that if the world would dance to the same music, at the same time, for one minute, global resonance will be created in that minute. That is the goal.
To create a resonance that goes viral, we need to start small. I propose that we organize, first, local “dance platforms”, where people of different nationalities or religions dance next to each other thus creating peaceful communities. The name of our project is: “When people dance, they don’t think about killing their neighbors”.
