AXIS Dance Company is a physically integrated dance company based in Oakland, CA. In 2006 they performed "Dancing to Music" by Victoria Marks. "Dancing to Music" was made in 1988 in the midst of a year-long Fullbright Fellowship in London. This respite from New York came at a time when Victoria Marks badly wanted to strip movement down to it's most essential elements in an effort to better understand how meaning arises from movement. "When a friend played Wim Mertens' music for me (Casting No Shadow from a man of no fortune, and with a name to come), I wondered if I could dance to the music with my eyes alone. It was through the act of seeing that I felt I could best approach the emotional intensity that I heard in the music."
