Indeed, yes, thanks for the Laban and Labanotation references ...

As for SL, yes there is still work being done in there, especially the
Odyssey group and the Avatar Orchestra Metaverse is certainly continuing
their work.  I myself will be finishing up a year-long series of
performances in the next month.

And I know the Second Front folks, having been part of one of their
disruptions early on (as a victim!).

If your first move is brilliant, you're in trouble. You don't really know
how to follow it; you're frightened of ruining it. So, to make a mess is a
good beginning. -- Brian Eno
