Choreography and I

October 31, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m in love with movement but choreography and I are having a tough time getting along. Movement for me is calm, understanding, and very easy going. While choreography is complexed, layered, moody, frustrating, and bitchy. This is why this blog is being created. It will help me deal with my anxieties as a choreographer as well as manage my problems that develop when I choreograph. This blog will help choreography and I get a better understanding of one another, so maybe by the end, I can slip into yet another identity: choreographer.

Movement and movements are my concern. I believe a moving body can generate, well, movements. Those movements can be political, personal, sexual, etc. I create work to generate movements. Now, this might sound rather smug of me -“I can change the world through dance”- but I do believe that the body is capable of articulating things that words can’t really express completely. I find that fascinating and is probably one of the main reasons that I continue to dance/choreograph.

Oh dance….
