Experiencing immediacy, aliveness. The dancers engaging fully in potentially dangerous operations with jump ropes, their bodies, gravity and the first row audience. Immediate, live, anything can happen. These tuned bodies go beyond the comfortable, the 'planable'. In the artistic environment it engages me on more than an athletic body plane. This moment, demanding my full physical and emotional presence at once. Asked to stay awake, reminded of the potential potency of live dance.
