every step is a fall


came from the desire to create a solo, paired with the lack of interest in spending time in a studio alone. I turned to what bothered me most at the time, which was reading various articles about how to make a dance and what makes a dance "good." The articles, mix of scholarly articles and journal/magazine articles, felt rooted in judgement rather than guidance. I didn't brush up on any of them before beginning the piece, but instead just let them simmer and recall what I could. Here's my response.
