Break. Dance. (1996) is a series of recordings of conversations between Van Heeswijk, artist friends, and students at the Goldsmith MA Curating Course on the silence between things and the necessity to take breaks. Jonny Clark sampled these recorded conversations into ambient dance music. This collaboration resulted in a CD of 23'34" duration, recorded and produced during Van Heeswijk's break in London, September 1996 to April 1997. An accompanying booklet of 12 pages with text by her conversation partners: Lise Autogena, Andrew Bick, Jennifer Greitschus, Anna Harding, Paul Hedge, Siraj Izhar, Susan Kozel, Rachel Lowe, Mark Pimlott, Amy Plant, Caroline Reffay, Andrew Renton (& Laurence Crane, Robert Guterman, Louise Hayward, Michael Levi), David Sowerby, Bettina Wilhelm and Keith Wilson.

From 14 May until 31 May 1997, an exhibition was held in the Cleveland Gallery in London with four loudspeakers, a hidden amplifier, a compact disk player and a timed door-release mechanism in order to create a space for pausing and dancing. On 31 May at 4 p.m. Clark and Van Heeswijk closed the exhibition with a 'live re-mix' dance event of their CD.
