off the plane and onto the dance floor

It’s been a while since I last blogged.  I wish I could say that that was due to work keeping me moving.  I definitely had a lot of work to do, but none of it had me moving, other than an amazing dance party I went to right when I got back to New York.  I even did “chicken fighting” and almost fell onto the speakers.

I suppose my physical moving locations from New York, to London, to Brussels, and the reverse does affect my thinking and moving.  But I can’t yet grasp it.

I could definitely grasp the pen, when earlier today I signed a lease on an amazing new apartment in Brooklyn!

Practice and Research

I’m in a “practice-based research” program, but a friend at another school said that that modality is old-school, which is why she chose a “practice-led research” program.

Why the persistence of duality between practice and research?

Especially in my dance practice, if there’s one thing my body is doing, it’s research.

I need more research.
