For the Time Being

Wow. August was a long time ago. 

Time feels compressed and expanded by turns - and sometimes simultaneously - here at Zen Mountain Monastery. Have I been dancing? Dreaming? Practicing?

In rehearsals we've been working with themes of loss and nakedness. For me questions of "what is a duet, a pair?", and "is it even possible to actually make a solo?" inspire my rehearsal planning. Who is it that watches you in your mind when you dance alone? You are dancing with them, aren't you? 

An ensemble voice, a choir of skin and bone. There will be other voices writing about this with me here in the coming months. Jennifer Lavenhar and Caitlin Quinn each have their own perspective on the work we are doing. So let's hear them.

And let's not let another 6 months go by without Making Contact.
