artistic catharsis

last night (February 27, 2009) i choreographed an interpretive piece to be performed this sunday by one of my favourite people in the world. the process was pleasant, quick, satisfying, certain, uplifting, reassuring and healing.
we both talked about the amazing power of artistic creation and performing, the almost mythical power and force of taking music, words, emotions, moods, moments, characters and breathing, squeezing, moulding, mouthing, massaging life, energy and form into them….as the creative process brings forth this new form, we bring forth a new part of us, an extension of our humanity and vison, we reshape and heal ourselves and hopefully move, touch and heal others.
the cathartic power of art, artistic creation and performing is monumental and magnificent!!
