There is a place for art in everything we do, every breath we take. However at times we need a refill of passion and inspiration that takes us to new spaces in our heads. Iluminar is my pool of inspiration and this week end, floating between dress rehearsals and going through 1000s of images, I have had one foot in the world and one foot in the “other” space. Even my family knows that I can’t fully see, listen and commit until I am done loving and nurturing every single memory of what it means to live to the very core of your passion.
When I watch the dancers on stage I know that they have left their bodies in some ways. In-spite of all the pain that comes from dancing on an apparatus (think of all the burns and bruises they get), they have reached a place where there is pure love and belonging. I see them reach that place and they somehow take me with them. This afternoon I will watch their last show of the season and it is with a heavy heart that I will hug my dancers and tell them how amazing they were. Life will go on, the magic that happened on stage will be one more memory to treasure forever.
