General Notes

It is difficult to decide about the Thematic or Experiential place for works like these. The music is very strong part of the work, and since music is not able to be judged objectively fully, this leaves one with some uncertainty. However, the dance portion of this artwork is so strong and has thematic elements, it strikes me as thematic.
