A tripod, I am slowly learning how to use a camera..and. abstract movement in motion; passion in life.
Choreographing rooms to play, create, enjoy and repeat. This picture sums up my life at the moment (Besides my main job: resting), a tripod and abstract movement; choreography.
Creating and event* Creating: A workshop, and Doing the event: Being.
Constructing avenues to create value, and promoting the goal of moving abstractly. Dancing through life. Really. Practicing choreography. Choreographic humanism.
Abstract is beautiful and profound in my definition, and inspired by the mentors I have chosen on my path, both in art and perception.**
Finding the abstract, feeling the abstract, and living the abstract.
The abstract as a metaphor for being truly alive, evolving, moving, feeling and enjoying. And the abstract can be defined, and described, by so much more. Its being aware of oneself and others and determining to see whats beautiful about any situation. I told the following to one of the beautiful people I had the good fortune to play with in the dance studio the other day:
“Life is shit then you die. So, what do you like about the shit? What can you enjoy about this reality as it is? ”
Holding a workshop in physical improvisational practice again, after stopping for over 1, 5 year, is a shock to my system, the body, but the mind truly enjoyed it and it felt like it was yesterday. This is the ambivalent life in my experience of having ME. The body doesn’t follow the mind, there is dissonance with no apparent logic. Yet returning to the dance studio was like coming home, and doing what I love. As the ability to physically move has been taken away from me at length (I can do short dances here and there, a couple of minutes at a time. ). I am finding a space to be calm, and not move away from my being. And the stillness is new and has been frightening for me. But as I mature I am not afraid.
Finding vulnerable rooms in people I work with, being concerned that they are ok within the creative play, and also resting on the fact that I can provide them with that security, if they so wish. A room to create, play, enjoy and repeat.
And I am doing this as a research and as a passion. Its not showing off, its a showing of. Always. In any endeavor. I create events, to be.
