If tourism is travel, what looks like a tourism with no geographic mobility ?  Each one its own and my tourism will exclude traveling. Let’s call it counter-tourism. It is expected to move away from “home” and have enriching experiences in unusual place-time(s) : it allows an escape from traditional social roles. Could ethno- choreography nourish my physical practice of counter- tourism? And as I ask those questions are you watching me? Am I watching you? Who is looking tonight?

“Tourist” is dealing with the unstable status of the contemporary dance subject
