Before a dancer is about to be and shape that dancing phrase unto the dance floor
and into the room
There is this moment
Wherein the whole phrase finds its desire
to be expressed
The body prepares
Taking in just the right amount of air
Tensing the muscles
Placing one’s intention and attention to where the phrase initiates inside of one’s own body
And feeling where this energyshape both pulls energy from the room, both emanates its desire to partake in the dance of molecules that help manifest the room and what’s inside of it
Out of where and NOW do we pull this energy, imagination and intent?
the only here and now possible
yet so many nows and possibilities inside
In so many timelines
And what energy and awareness do we choose?
Which scent to follow?
Doesn’t matter at all whether the phrase to be danced is precomposed or totally made up in the moment
The levee is fundamentally the same question always
It is the what? that leads to a being-doing which lightens the place up like a Christmas tree
The dance an expression of our innate capacity and desire to share in the universal ecstasy of being
