Choreographies of Negotiation

We negotiate with every encounter on our journey to the destination. We use the gestures of the person coming towards us as clues, and based on those clues, the thought of how to move is expressed as a dance. I wonder if I should go first, whether other people should go first; whether I should go to the left, or to the right, stop for a while, or whether or not I should pass by at a quick pace. The movements of recognising other people, waiting for them, and giving consideration to them are a form of choreography.
