SUNDAY MARCH 21 1999
SUNDAY, October 25
Karol, Daman and I decide to move our 3:30 jam time up to 3:00, because a couple possible attendees requested we do so. Daman's laying on the floor warming up, and Karol and I start dancing, slowly moving through, over, around the infinite amount of surfaces of eachothers' bodies, pressing, yielding, supporting. I notice a difference in how he's moving-more connection to earth, to me, to contact points. Daman leaves for a moment and comes back with his camera and begins shooting awhile, then settles back on the floor to watch. I say "i think our structure today should be 3 duets, so each of us has a turn to watch." D and K agree. When Karol and I are finished dancing, Daman and i dance next, I'm warmed up and our duet has a lot of energy and playfulness and Karol is verbally appreciative as we dance. This feels good. Then I watch as Karol and Daman move rather awkwardly and low to the ground, struggling a bit. And I appreciate the privilage of witnessing. We talk a little when we're done about the unique-ness of every single duet you ever do...I am honored to participate in this form.
Sunday, Sept. 28-a dance with Daman
only the two of us showed up we talked, catching up we decide to dance for half an hour, then go for coffee to get really caught up- we start dancing-connecting our shoulders leaning in-leaning in-leaning in into eachother, into ourselves... we toss eachother playfully, pause, suspend and surge, we wind up head to head at some point-i remember thinking "oh head to head-how often i've been here" then suddenly the familiar becomes mysterious and we move off together into the unknown gathering information together about eachother- communicating, listening, hearing, speaking with our movement... we settle to the floor back to back as our half-hour ends, and we no longer need coffee-or to get caught up...
Sunday, Sept. 13-Contact Jam at Case Western Reserve University-
