We had our first rehearsal last week for Framing Bodies. It was very fun and exciting to start the process of making this piece. One of the first assignments we had, was to write continuously for about 10 minutes in response to the statement “Love, I felt it when.” I agree with Lydia’s process to think and then move. I know it helped me develop a sense of self for this piece and feel more comfortable, while working with others that have another point of view about love and dance. I am not a dancer, but love dance and I enjoyed the task of having to create movement from my own literature. The more you are open and giving during this process the more you will gain and learn about others and yourself. I met some very lovely people, and I am really looking forward to how we develop this piece. Can’t wait for next rehearsal to see what Lydia will have us do.
