We are working on The Floating City and this was the first rehearsal when everyone was there in a while.  It felt great to watch talented artists embodying not only my phrase work but actually making it better by adding in their own personal stories.

Themes we explored:

Pulleys - (more about that in another post)

Slowing down the brain / reflection

Drama/ storyness in the body

Place in the body - a landscape we can see or feel

Textured body

A body going through something - a story passing through the body

Unveil and Reveal

Floating on a boat / waves hitting at different directions
