I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks. I’ve been taking a brief hiatus from blogging because we’re on a brief hiatus from rehearsing. We had a very busy September with the Contemporary Arts Museum and Weekend of Texas Contemporary Dance and Rice Dance Film Festival. October is a breather. I’m storing up, planning, dreaming, writing so that when we kick off our residency in January it will be full and fruitful. I am so excited. I’ve started gathering texts and ideas and talking with the dancers about possibilities. The show will be called “Mortar, Sylphs Wrote.” Any guesses on why?
I haven’t felt very present lately. I’ve been planning for almost three projects past the residency and show in March. It’s been a very floating, non-specific experience planning and writing proposals for my next projects. But there is a time for everything. In September I could hardly think about the next day as each day was so full with preparations and performances. Now I’ve shifted into the other half of the experience, the amorphous planning. I love both.
BUT! Exciting news! There may be another chance for you to see Points and Coordinates coming up soon. I will let you know as soon as I know anything definite. Cheers!
