Light Dance is a conscious transfiguration of the body, its movement and the encompassing space; a transposition of matter to light exalted in the dance. This corresponds to the conceptualized spirit of the performer whose body is "consumed" by light. A transposition occurs between the performer and audience. The audience experiences the dissolution of the body into light. In this thesis I assemble fragments of visible and inner light experiences and concepts of the body by an intuition of the spirit . The purpose is to equate visible and inner light. The writing is based on light as the physical self of the spirit; the significance of the body and movement. Specific examples are cited to create a contextual fabric for the inspired design of Light Dance.
