The Performance Jitters

February 7, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

In a couple of hours I will be showing my work-in-progress, “Chalk Boundaries” at the Wexner Center for the Arts. I have no idea how many people will show up. I have no clue how people will respond. I don’t even know if people know how to get to the Mershon. But, will all these worries and with my nerves exponentially at its peak, I’m still very at ease because what I’m thinking about most is the past 5 weeks  and how thus far it has been such an eye opening experience; teaching me to understand my values in choreography and also the importance for me to maintain a dialogue with my dancers. I realized that I can never be the choreographer that never asks the performers their opinions, thoughts, or ideas. I realize that I have a tendency to let context and movement have a ongoing battle in my process. I’ve learned that I’m learning and that my fear of staying stagnant is no longer a fear.

I always get like this before every performance, very trance like. I’ll post again after the performances later tonight.

Oh Dance…
