TED十佳演讲之身体语言 舞者还是用PPT?(05)


I shall now, therefore, humbly propose my own thoughts, which I hope will not be liable to the least objection.


Once we eliminate public funding for the artists, let's put them back to work by using them instead of PowerPoint.


As a test case, I propose we start with American dancers.


After all, they are the most perishable of their kind, prone to injury and very slow to heal due to our health care system.


Rather than dancing our Ph.Ds, we should use dance to explain all of our complex problems.


Imagine our politicians using dance to explain why we must invade a foreign country or bail out an investment bank. It's sure to help.


Of course someday, in the deep future, a technology of persuasion even more powerful than PowerPoint may be invented, rendering dancers unnecessary as tools of rhetoric.


However, I trust that by that day, we shall have passed this present financial calamity.


Perhaps by then we will be able to afford the luxury of just sitting in an audience with no other purpose than to witness the human form in motion.
