CKA: voice recognition (round 4)

It’s taken a while for me to post this but the project is still going! This is my interpretation of Mina’s 2nd text (voice recognition) dance sent to me. She had just finished a performance in New Orleans with a group of folks who’d been with Deborah Hay again and the text, this time, was…

First Memory

Just logged into my website to write a homepage blurb and this came out. Not homepage material but I think it’s the beginning of a juicy little story. My first memory is of my body dancing. I remember it feeling like I already knew what I was doing. But I wanted my mother so the…
