She said it. I say it on a daily basis. Little by little, people are getting it*:
“The body is your instrument in dance, but your art is outside that creature, the body.”
Body and soul – an old odd couple who keeps being misundertood.
No Oriental Dance without that spark* that lives in and beyond the body; no life without a body which is fully and consciously inhabited by the soul. I know daily life makes it hard for us to live inside our bodies and our souls but it´s a FOCUS we have to keep if we don´t want to turn ourselves into computers (…aren´t we headed there?… 😦 ). Trying to keep myself positive, despite all odds.
