“Stylized” means condensed to essential characteristics, which are chosen
according to an artist’s view of man.
An artist does not fake reality—he stylizes it. He selects those aspects of
existence which he regards as metaphysically significant—and by isolating and
stressing them, by omitting the insignificant and accidental, he presents his
view of existence. His concepts are not divorced from the facts of
reality—they are concepts which integrate the facts and his metaphysical
evaluation of the facts.
The dance is the silent partner of music and participates in a division of
labor: music presents a stylized version of man’s consciousness in action—the
dance presents a stylized version of man’s body in action.
