Jiri Kylian - Bella Figura [rehearsal]
. . . . and to the other end of the spectrum, the ideas or the letting go of ideas is the same. In the BMC workshop I did last weekend, Alice Cummins commented that she has just begun again to start using the word "technique" again, to refer to the particular set of skills you bring to express your movement. I can see why she may have shied away from using this word as dance or anything we do can sometimes get lost in the technique of it. It's something to be aware of as we get "better" at things, perhaps to acknowledge that the very heart of it is already there and whether our "technique" improves or not is actually peripheral to the crux of the biscuit.
