Moving Backwards

2018

This is a dance score I started practicing in February 2018 while teaching at DOCH in Stockholm. “Moving backwards (literally) through (subjective) cycles of completion.” I did 41 daily videos of this practice as I traveled from Brooklyn, New York to Sugar Grove, Illinois to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and finally, Ubud, Bali.
The series can be found in its entirety on Facebook and Instagram.

Moving Backwards is a synthesis of many personal interests, including:

nervous system cycles

not knowing

rhythm as a tool for transformation

the *actual* experience of my body as a tool for transformation

my future is behind me

my past is in front of me
