About Renewal

Interruptions occur, but how do we return to what we were in the middle of doing?   The question is: Can we?

Is it possible to finish what we had started when some of these occurrences may change us in ways we never thought possible. The experience of renewal may be a more complicated process than imagined. So if we strive to renew, perhaps thrive in the process of renewal and with this potentially become a newer version of the undetermined renewal state that awaits us all down the line.

Working from an autobiographical place this concept will be deeply explored by two dancers through improvisational tasks using Ruth Zaporah's 'Falling Leaves' technique with the hope of unleashing the honesty of the personal and rooted movement vocabulary that evolves as we grow yet is never erased by any event. 

As you watch the dancers in the space Eimear asks you to consider:

Have you ever had to renew? If the answer is no, sit back and observe.

If the answer is yes, were you successful?  And did it happen more than once?
