Today I went on a workshop at Wavehill public garden and cultural centre in the Bronx, NY called Sounding Silence and the Winter Walk. It was led by one of my favourite pedagogs, Nicolás Dumit Estevez. Nicolas is a truly empathetic leader, and surrenders to the shared moments people create in the act of being. This walk was no exception. The experience mustered ideas for me of the idividual and the collective and ceated a space where creative ideas flowed through me as we crunched our way thorugh the freshly fallen snow, holding hands to help each other through, and stopping in a circle to share 4 oranges between the 12 of us. There were no phones, no photos, no talking and it created a unified and focused situation within which to contemplate the self. This workshop was an infuential part of my development process for a piece that I am to perform in a couple of months in Australia called Along The Well. You can see that performance on this blog in March.
