How can we know the dancer from the dance? (W.B. Yeats)

Let's turn to dance then. A circle of women dancing in the streets might point to the fact that good governement can be judged by its effects on public life. This is how Ambrogio Lorenzetti depicted "The Good Government" in his fresco for Siena's town hall (1337-39). It was ages before Michel Foucault committed himself to study government in terms of "actions upon other actions (the actions of others)", and ages before Genova 2001. In contemporary art, dance as an action leads to the question of radical subjectivity: Now that welfare state and state socialism are defunct, what does it mean for individuals to be without the big administrative apparati. Or: What am I going to do if my city lies in ruins?
