Four questions for the dancer
“What if the question “What if where I am is what I need?” is not about what I need but an opportunity to remember the question “What if where I am is what I need?”?

What if dance is how I practice my relationship with my whole body at once in relationship to the space where I am dancing in relationship to each passing moment in relationship to my audience? What if the depth of this question is on the surface?

What if my choice to surrender the pattern, and it is just a pattern, of facing a single direction or fixing on a singularly coherent idea, feeling, or object when I am dancing is a way of remembering to see where I am in order to surrender where I am?

What if how I see while I am dancing is a means by which movement arises without looking for it?”
