Leading into the 6th session
“I’d like to produce a program that is intimate, personal, and taps into our maturity. Whether the pieces are joyful, tense or cathartic, for example, they need to be honest and deeply felt. I imagine a cohesive program of works exploring common themes and aesthetics, curated to have an arc of its own.
My life at this point in time is ALL about overcoming obstacles. I think this is a dynamic all of our group members continually experience. I would like to explore themes that permeate my life in its present context: parenting, mature relationships/marriage, depression, the pressure of social media, dealing with loss, the fight to produce work, the fight to dance, the fight to remain true to myself, and the joy and struggle to find balance, harmony, and peace for me and for my kids. I would also like to examine themes of birth, rebirth, collaboration, reaching out for help, solidarity, support, giving and receiving, soulful play, ying and yang, and the attempt to embrace quality over quantity.”
