"Sufferhead must go. Jeffahead must come."In rehearsal, our associate choreographer is most often the spiritual center for the company, and, as associate director, I most often keep a passionate distance - questioning and considering the choices we make.
- Fela Kuti
This afternoon, with the associate choreographer gone, I became acutely aware of how distanced I had become in my relationship to the creative team. I found myself in a unique position to be a generating artist, critical outside eye and engaged nurturing force.
I hope to make room for more of this spiritual vulnerability as rehearsals continue.
