Blush Recap

Found this creation called Blush from a few years ago. Makes me think about the people in the room who were there for me. People who I’ve watched develop their own distinct movement based communities.

This improvisational solo was created and performed when I was narrowly falling out of relationships in my dance collective, love life and spiritual life.

In short, there are people who became my family that imprinted beautiful memories that still make me blush. I see their faces come to my brain. Simple moments of laughter and curiosity shared. Usually, there are several tiny moments or actions in each day that remind me of a conversation or special thing about a person.

Who are those persons for you? What makes you blush?
