transforming. PUBLICLY. (day 11)
i am in week two of a 2-month residency at seattle's PROJECT: SPACE AVAILABLE where i am creating a series of body-based performative installations called, transforming. PUBLICLY. as many of you know, i have been working to redefine my relationship to music and re-find my relationship to dance over the last 2 years, in particular. this residency is about an exploration/expansion/manifestation of my interests in multiple mediums - dance / installation / music - and an evolution and deepening of my relationship to music: vocalizing, composing, experimenting with recording techniques, building a cassette player orchestra, writing for that orchestra...
my time in the space thus far has been INCREDIBLE. i applied for this residency over a year ago, so i've had some time to prepare... i entered feeling open and ready to truly commune with the space, but with some relatively flushed out skeletons of what i wanted to create. just 10 days in, i am quickly finding my interests pulled elsewhere. there are through lines - development, evolution of the same seeds- but what i'm discovering and experimenting with feels genuinely inspired by the space and where i am now...and now...and now...which is extremely exciting!! i have officially stepped into uncharted territory within myself.
i am so grateful for this amazing opportunity...
i would like to apply this concept to my revived relationship to dance as i think it will have a similar effect...to do this, i need a working laptop and a simple digital video camera.
...just one of the ways i will utilize these tools and deeply benefit from your support.
to all who have pledged and shared - this will be possible because of you. the words, "THANK YOU" just aren't enough...
DEEP GRATITUDE. IT IS AN HONOR.
