A cheap horse is rare
What is rare is expensive

With “if, then” as undercurrent, the piece asks what a choreographic train of thought can be or look like. What conditions the following, and how? According to which givens does something make sense? And what does that say about the backdrop of our reading?

The alliterative words in the title Spelling Spectacle share a twofold meaning. They both evoke a sense of magic, in addition to their literary sense of reading or seeing: to spell as in decoding, or a spell as in a magical formula. A spectacle as something to be seen, and spectacles as something one sees through.
