Zendai Diary Monday Day 6

I wanted to explore the role of dancers, in ancient times, I saw it as the ones who would make movements not to please an audience but to set the air in motion which would then by touching prepared wind instruments set off a sound, a melody

Their bodies would move to play a melody not to please the eye.
