I'm trying to create a theatrical experience that acknowledges the frail, fallible aspects of being human. For that task, I need a flesh and blood dancer, one with human skin and human voice. I guess I want to get dancers down off that pedestal of the ethereal, other worldly plane, and let them be real.
