as the summer passes by and i realize that i will most likely be adapting my final year as a graduate student in dance to accommodate my recovery, i have tons of time to consider my final research. i know that this injury will influence my work. there is no way it couldn’t. it has affected my entire life.
so…considering that you are also going through a life-altering experience with your own injury and recovery process, i wonder if you would like to be a part of my dance? here is how:
send me words, images, sounds, smells, anything that comes to mind regarding your injury.
here are some examples of words that come to my mind:
disassembled, fragmented, obstructed, frayed, sutured
your contributions will be used in the creation of dance phrases. these phrases will be a part of a larger performance used in conjunction with research for my master’s degree. they can be as literal or abstract as you wish - i would just love to have others’ input!
