I am doing a performance with four of my friends at Nationale in ten days. I have a lot to do. Costumes and props to make and find, sounds to put together, maps to create. We had a good rehearsal tonight, even though only three of us were there, our first real pin-it-down one. It amazes me how much thinking there is, how many many hours of thinking go in to some tiny little hand gesture that is in so many ways arbitrary in the end. During the dance workshop that I just finished we talked a lot about how an idea isn't when you say it is... or as soon as you say it is, it isn't. You know?
