Dancing in France this past decade has taught me less about ‘contemporary dance’ and more about metaphor. About representation and choice. That each direction means something and to teach and choreograph with questions not answers. Sculpting away at movement, toward the essential. For me, the asana of yoga are a hundred handy excuses to explore these infinite directions, these ways to be, these qualities within ourselves and in relation to the world around us. In dance, we dose the different qualities to tell a story of a moment.
