Is dance/body/movement communicative?

 
In researching dance/body/ movement as a personal coded signifier, we unfold its literacy and readability by decomposing our thinking processes and deconstructing the acts.
 
Playing with the relations of our ways of thinking and opening up the authorship of interpretation leads to the discourse of acts and thinking.
 
May readers be(come) co-authors?
