people as design elements
This is an old pic from a rehearsal in 2005 for "Little Dragon". I just spent a few hours in a workshop for a dance piece called "\dance\songs\" going up at the Theatre Centre November 17th.
It's been a few months since I was in a workshop -- longer since being at the formative stages of something based so deeply in movement. It is sometimes a deeply surreal experience, watching performers exhaust themselves in an abstract set of movements, in a search for the few that will be in the show itself a month from now. They do fascinating things, not really knowing what they are searching for, but trusting that how they work will lead them to finding it. Sometimes they know when they see something worthwhile. Sometimes it's hard to tell.
