I found that dance, like in many cultures, is an important exhibition of feeling in Orlando. I originally was intrigued by the Introduction page telling us that the story was a "dance through history". Exploring dance further led me to a tag called "dance", which held multiple call sheets outlining the importance of characters learning their dances. It also showed how important Orlando's emotions towards Sasha were in these scenes. It seems like Orlando's feelings are revealed through dancing.
In Orlando, there are many extremes of emotions that are witnessed and experienced. Throughout Orlando's life events and transformations, his / her emotions on screen help convey the internal feelings and thoughts behind the visual information. Orlando appears to exprience deep happiness in some moments, and deep melancholy in others. Overall, as Sally Potter stated in one of her assets I have included in my pathway, "The unifying principle is the force of the character of Orlando who propels us believably through time and history in the search for life and a love."
