Aurélie Dupont and Manuel Legris, Le Parc

There’s a very cool book I read some time ago called The Singing Neanderthals. In it, the author makes a strong case that music and language evolved in parallel and one is likely as old as the other. Given that movement is a far more fundamental activity than sound-making, how can it not be true that dance evolved along with music and language, a third element in parallel? It’s almost impossible. Our love of dance is a brainstem love.
