See Me, Feel Me. A dance performance, generally RL, that touched me in some way, but I won’t go into detail how. That’s for you to feel, to see, to listen for yourself. I watch dance performances in SL, and in RL through videos. I sink deep into them, how do I feel, how do I react to it, can I feel the movement, does it inspire me, or do I dislike it. In turn, I believe it expands my own mind and creativity.
I find that while contemporary dance is the style that moves me the most, what appeals to me depends on the moment and my own mindset. I believe this is true for each one of us – and my hope is that I, and for all of you, keep stepping outside of my comfort zone and create from the heart and not from the mind.
I will soon be teaching a workshop on “small stage performances”, which I consider this to be. A small area of focus, our eyes drawn to the dancer’s expressive moments, the flow of her costume and costume transitions. Minimal set, visual image changes – subtle but compelling.
I see so much more, inspiration and echoes. What do you see?
