Contemplative Dance Practice
This morning a few of us got together, by invitation of A., and did Contemplative Dance Practice. This is a form developed by Barbara Dilley that combines sitting meditation, personal warm-up and open space dancing. It was lovely to focus in alittle bit to start the week before I had to output so much stuff - we have alot of reading this week as well as papers, a research proposal, two showings of choreography and many rehearsals. By just slowing down, focusing on the breath, letting my body tell me how it wants to move, then moving with others - I got to connect and move without the pressure of creating or being interesting or even being seen. Just alittle time to move for myself.
