Lucid by Vordenker, performance in a nursing home, some plans for next year, a few reflections on failures and successes in 2017.
Casting off into the abyss
acerbic reality sometimes
amid honeyed eyes and embodied learning
the stymied hurtling galaxies (Thanks Chris Mansell for this line)
will they collide? will they align?
or will it all fall apart.
So many gargantuans at once,
perhaps a bad idea...
though potential inherent in their DNA
is phosphorescent with futures
Both known and unknown
all delightful - in their own way.
Perhaps we're not casting off into a complete abyss...
parts of the way ahead are certainties
and of course, fun episodes of streamed video to watch
and of course, progress
and of course, regret
at least these are pillars to
or simply be with for a while.
Casting off into certainty is rather boring though
I much prefer an abyss
Perhaps it's more fun to be blindfolded in this dance
so that it's not the future that's so in focus
but the sensation of movement of air and the touch of dance partners
the sounds of our feet on the studio floor...
Though, for OH&S reasons, I'll take a peek at where we're going every now and again.
You wouldn't believe what the Australian Art Quartet did today. It is amazing working with really accomplished musicians and relating their music techniques to movement techniques, their understanding of music composition to movement composition... I'm making an integrated sound/movement work... we don't know what about yet, but we've got an 8 day residency at Bundanon to figure it out!
I'm in a workshop with Maxine Doyle from Punchdrunk Theatre organised by Strut Dance! There's a showing in a couple of weeks time. I'm also starting this new work for the Song Company and I've started deconstructing the meaning behind the text I'll be setting... maybe you can help me with that, as I don't know if I've got it right....
