Thanks to everyone who went out yesterday. It was wonderful to be able to share the moment and space with such warm and sensitive audience.
A special thanks to those of you that have emailed feedback and comments. Your feedback is most welcome especially since this is a creative research project. Karen Bond emailed me the following exchange overheard at the performance:
4-year old girl: They're not r-e-a-l!
Dad: Yes, they are real.
Girl: But, but, they're not r-e-a-l.
Dad: Well, they ARE real.
Girl: What are they DOing?
Ron sent the following feedback:
"I really enjoyed this morning's performance! I saw a meditation on strength, suffering, static balance, dynamic balance and peace, through which the central character mastered the forces which oppressed her (represented by the branch) and moved from near bondage to freedom and mastery. I will definitely come again, with friends and family."
On another note: I was unable to photograph yesterday's performance so I am now seeking photos of the event. I saw lots of cameras there. If anyone has photos they can give me I would greatly appreciate it! I will publish them on the blog with your permission only. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These pictures were shot by Karen Bond. That's Toshi Makihara and audiences on the left and me below.
