For various reasons I find myself in San Francisco. I arrived last tuesday and will be here until December.
Another continent another dance.
Before I arrived in SF I spent 5 days in NYC. I took GAGA and was reminded of the amazing power a teacher holds over how we perceive and experience something. Chisato Shemesh (she teaches GAGA in London) quiet strength and skill was highlighted more clearly to me.
Last week I started interning with Katie Faulkner, a bay area artist/dancer/choreographer/teacher. She is a few weeks away from showing a site specific piece she has choreographed on around 20 dancers, performed in two locations in downtown SF, with specially commissioned music and projection. Katie is welcoming, generous and genuinely lovely. I am very excited to be involved in such a project.
Next step... dance dance dancing.
