wowowoowowowow. That is all I have to say.
What my dancers created in rehearsal this evening is just beautiful and wow I don’t even know. Words.
Watch them. They are amazing.
The movement they generated tonight came from 6 words they selected from a list of words/feelings, along with a quote. I told them to choose the words that resonated with them the most/ that made them feel something or remember an event in their life.
I ended up using 10 of the words they gave me from two questions I asked them:
1. When I ask you to think about a breaking point, or a turning point in your life, what are the first two words or feelings that come to mind.
2. What word or emotion first comes to mind when you think about “the future”.
The list of 25 words:
Frustration, anger, resentment, afraid, uncomfortable, hopeful, moving on, giving up, letting go, excitement, anxious, confident, ready, stable, unstable, strength, worry, peaceful, growth, change, determined, hollow, freed, uncertainty, destroyed.
Two quotes for them to choose from:
“Only yesterday I carved out your name”
“In dreams there’s a way to die”
What they came up with was incredible and I am so impressed and excited and wow my brain has exploded and I haven’t recovered yet.
ALL OF THE VIDEOS:
I then had them take their phrases and combine them together to create duets
