A note of thanks to all THIS Ensemble participants for fridays event at Cross St.
I am fascinated to see and listen to where this group travels. The tone of the space we created on friday was gentle and attentive, it is really inspiring.
I was so pleased with the ‘enabling strategies and constraints’ that I was tentative about introducing. I am tentative because i do not wish to interfere with the organic evolution of our relationship. But I particularly enjoyed the one minute pauses for emptying the mind. These formulations of stillness provide a visual and experiential counterpoint to the sonic and kinetic intensity. I am also delighted by our adaptability in working with new co-performers and environments (like Clinton's backyard).
Toward the end of our journey I was sitting on the edge of the stage between Adrian and Michael (wearing a string of pearls!). I felt a deep serenity, enlightened and enlivened through the process experienced with friends.
The sensitivity and cooperation untainted by obligation inspires me toward openness.
Gratitude and love to all.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
