Examination, reflection, discovery, product- such is the evolution of our rehearsals where each day I am challenged by this foreign system of collaboration we utilize. Coming from a strictly classical Ballet background, this self-investigatory process is at once terrifying, exhilarating, and satisfying: where structure is tossed aside for the sheer glorification of movement. Such a process has not come easily to me, contradicting the rules, classical posture, and stance I have long been comfortable with. However, I am learning to let go while simultaneously battling the fear of venturing into this new realm of dance where I am forced to explore my own unknown.
