The essential…

I woke up today with a dilemma… If, as said in The Little Prince, the essential is invisible to the eye (free translation I’m afraid), how are we choreographers to convey anything essential through such a visual (and ephemeral?!) art as dance is?
I guess we just need to try and show the things that are not essential and either be content with that, or hope that the rest will be interpreted or read between the lines (movements, rather).

Or we can show a drawing of a hat and hope someone sees the snake eating the elephant…
