I am excited to tell you that I am part of this amazing collaboration, and I am so thrilled to share this with you. Hope you could witness this.
from the program, Soft Freedoms
it is, it is for me but not in the way you have said
It took a while to understand
the path is just different for some of us
a continuum, of practice, study
it does not land, rarely arrives
but, i desire still
fully accepting of this hovering
it is here — where we meet, how we meet
how we negotiate our complexity

thank you for those who made it. It was an amazing journey to collaborating with amazing movers. I was so moved by Val and Chit’s vision and bringing many artistry on stage. This was tremendous experience for me as a mover, and proud and humbling to be a part of.
Thank you, Val. Thank you, Chit.
