For those of you looking for insight into Venturing Out on March 17, please go to Day 62!
I am currently working on a group piece with the lovely Prudence Sun and Shanon Adams. We rehearse every Wednesday at Claire School of Dance (thank you Roxanne Claire!!!!). I have been showing the work as it progresses at Fieldworks every other Friday and will be showing it at Venturing Out on April 7.
Tonight I realized that I have choreographed quite a bit of material without thought to my motivation. I struggle to keep with a concept as it is so easy to stray and add movement that looks interesting, feels good, ect. I have to constantly ask myself what am I trying to say in this gesture, this battement, this turn.....
So tonight I started my improvisation with a phase, and went where it took me. I am hoping this will give me guidance on where to go next in the development of the work.
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.
