showtime
soon...
it will be showtime again.
somebody will paint beautiful faces all over the sky
somebody will start bombarding us with really wonderful letters
letters full of truth
and gentleness
and humility.
soon...
(it says here)

Kenneth Patchen
Excitement or anxiety, inner or outer, fake or real, feminine or masculine, to please or not to please... and where is the line between this dualities?
The act of performance is considered to be an outer oriented thing, that affects a dancers representation. Especially in the history of jazz dance, it mainly worked in the entertainment industry. However, what happens, when the real thing is starting to come out, and what fight an artist goes through inside himself existing in a liminal space between the inner truth and outer expectations?
