Movement at its most coherent state, is usually a means to something rather than the aim. In service of, rather than the subject matter.

Running makes full physical sense when chasing, racing or running away from.

Choreography should provide dancers with immediate, clear, urgent, sensible, evident reasons to move. It should free them from the need to pretend, or come up with artificial motivations for the movements they are doing. Movement for movement sake is where dancing becomes self indulgent, muted, futile. It’s where choreography comes to a still point, stagnates and turns abusive.
