I had the wonderful opportunity to offer a dance-poetry-visuals contemplation at a day intensive with Steve Ford on the 30th of April 2016.
It was a very beautiful and in-depth day with him.
From the morning occasion I wrote down two things he said, which stood out to me:
“You can not ask the reflection in the mirror to take you home”
“you can not be more than what you already are.”
I deeply connect with the profundity of those two ‘statements’ and I felt they flowed beautifully with my poetry. So I spontaneously interwove them into the offering.
The consideration around art and performance has always been for me to contemplate reality. Reality in the sense that there is no separation.
The remarkable occurrence of creating art in this way is that no shape or form has to be fixed… and work can always flow, breathe, change, take on millions of different forms, is limitless and totally alive… it can not be owned… as long as the communication is non-separation there is no possibility of cultures clashing… anything is possible… any participation in millions of ways.
