Taking a few deep breaths, just like my darling snuggler,aka Arnett the resident five-year-old,did today when he was operating on overdrive. Finally I am taking some time to feed my blog(thanks, Paul,for that analogy).
I know everything posted thus far is only about 2-d art,but the performance stuff is festering inside of me. I can just feel it taking shape slowly and in an unusual and slightly round about way. I think,deep care, of my body will be the first step towards a dance theater piece-a new one, my two previous ones revamped,or a mixture of both. To that end, I had my second ever Rolfing session today-it was amazing and it has really inspired me to maintain a deep dialogue with this body that I inhabit.Feeling the therapist,with his surefooted fingers,converse with my muscles,fascia and nervous system was really quite spectacular. My partner asked me afterwards if it hurt and I really can’t say that it did,even though at one point the sensations almost made me feel nauseous-so yes,there was pain,but it was more of a release,a willingness to re-shift and come out of dark tunnels(or drawers).
I am very eager to have another session-in the meantime I might re-visit Feldenkrais work,take a few swims and ponder life on stage…….really,maybe I should just ask Arnett’s input since he is the born mover and performer.
This year is really quite promising-it feels so vigorous,despite the occasional lull I feel.Even just choosing a different layout for this blog,proved fruitful: it gave me an idea for experimenting with multiple layers of drawings on Rorschach images.
Life is good.
