Freedom and Responsibility
Jairo and Nicola are away for their deserved holiday in Cornwall.
I am thinking, how to 'promote' our project.
And this is not only this project but generally my practice as 'Dance Artist'.
'Dance Artist' sounds great but in fact it means the person does all the activities you can think of in dance- creation, choreography, performance, teaching, marketing, fundraising, researching, writing etc. The person is almost like the whole theatre organisation, you know, like Sadler's Wells.
And Dance Artist tend to be self-employed, which means s/he is constantly looking for some idea for a project, looking for a work, and never makes decent income.
But I am not writing this to mourn. I am saying that we have great freedom as well as responsibility with what we do, what happens to us and how we respond.
For me, this idea opens up more possibilities and wider view of an issue. I believe this kind of flexibility in the way of seeing is vital for being an artist. And perhaps to enjoy life.
So anyway, I am becoming more aware of the responsibility in the project and feeling that I have to make more action.
'Experience of the audience' is the largest consideration in FRAGMENTS. We don't want the audience to watch the performance from outside, but they should be part of it.
The audience should be part of creative process.
The audience should affect our creation.
The audience should enjoy themselves.
So we want to make a framework for the 'experience of the audience'.
This blog is one of the attempt.
You can be part of the creative process.
You should affect our creation.
You should enjoy yourself.
By reading and leaving a comment in this blog.
We will do the same.
