Small pockets of inspiration.

Today's rehearsal was meaningful. For me, it was the first rehearsal where a leap was made and we treaded somewhat less carefully around topics, dialogue and well... eachother.
Teeth were dug deep into one thing, deep enough so that we could start tasting something. Even if we are still unsure what that something might be and how fond we are of that taste.

We connected transformation through body parts and repetition to contact, and we left it about as open as that. It was immensely interesting to further discover each of our personalities, the way we touch, the way we approach contact, the choices we make, or don’t make and how we see the same task through different glasses.

As we paired up, each of us (at some point) met with every other collective member and also witnessed the other meetings, the wealth of the collective became even more apparent.

As seen in picture, I jotted down some post-it notes from each session. Moments that were meaningful for one reason or another. Re-opening each of them almost feels like a window in advent calendar. Every opening bringing us a bit closer towards the “thing” the thing being that metal idea, understanding or moment when maybe while looking through different glasses we all get a kick out of the same or a similar thing.

Personally, it feels incredible to be in a room with these 4 inspiring individuals, each with a strong, powerful and enchanting world. I’m enjoying the journey between each of these worlds and the open invitation for them to visit mine.
