An upgrade! I dream about those.

This place of (jet)lag I understand very well… it seems to cultivate a wonderfully memorable ‘alternate’. Occasionally it reminds me of being deep within an improvisation. I am on the outside looking in at myself, beside myself whilst being deeply embodied.

It’s also great to read your notes on Kerry’s rehearsal … detailed, clear. I feel a brief understanding of being in that space with those dancers. Reading/seeing their doubts, their training, their confusion, their understanding. Perhaps the video is not necessary?

Am in the studio with Colin Poole at the moment:

You’ll see we’ve brought Matthew Goulish into the space as well (but not Proust).
