We Are Constellations

I was joined this October by a wonderful group of artists: Natalie Corne, Laura Dannequin, Helka Kaski, Zoe Manders, Camille Marchadour and Tilly Webber. Together we begun on a performance research process. My invitation to them was to meet, to meet and to pay attention to the questions and opportunities that arose out of the specificity of this/these encounter/s. 

I approached it thinking that it will be okay to delve into the unknown. In fact I sort of see it as my my job to do so.

I approached it with a keen sense that we never start from a blank page. Even when we wish to. 

I approached it with trepidation.

I approached with fear. It’s always a part of it. 

I approached it with Solnit under my arm and Ezra Furman in my walkman (so to speak).

I approached it pondering how it all fits into our broken world.
