Today in my DANC modern class at San Jac, I asked my students to share one thing they wanted to work on. Then, we all spent a five minute improvisation concentrating on that one thing. Since I have been doing my improvisations mainly at home, I haven't had the chance to really travel and expand. Therefore, this first improvisation is all about using this giant studio here at San Jac South.
Since I had the time, space, and energy in between the two classes I am teaching today, I decided to move some more. I am considering doing a structured improvisation for my upcoming showing at Venturing Out. The impetus is fear- so here is my first practice. Honestly, I'm not sure if this motivation is going to work for me. I ended up feeling quite stuck and uncreative. Fear immobilizes me- in real life and in movement. I also feel that it may be unhealthy to indulge fear- to let it manifest in physical form. While I think that it is important that art reflects the realities and truths of life- I do feel there is a fine line between awareness and dwelling on something.
This is a blog of processes. Through the sharing of media and writing I am following my impulses, teasing out and unpacking, translating, solidifying, and making concrete my investigations into something that can be shared.
