Recently I’ve been having a hard time with myself creatively. Its been one of those times where I’m consistently comparing my work and creativity to that of others. Someone always has more technique, someone is always more creative, someone always has more artistry, someone always has a better interpretation. When this way of thinking becomes that overwhelming its hard to find your self within your creativity. Its hard to find the space for your work and your interpretation and your movement. Something I am trying to do is to keep my thoughts on myself. What feels right for me, how does my body want to move, what ideas do I want to pursue. This piece is about that. A reminder to me that how we are, exactly at that moment in time, is the most perfect version of ourselves. That you don’t have to try to move like the person next to you, the teacher, the choreographer, that other dancer – that how you move exactly in that moment is the best way you can. What you bring today – the tiredness, the ache in your back, the creative block your feeling – is creating how you are in that moment and that is the best version of you. Its not a competition, all of our purest selves are valid.
This piece is about discovering that your purest self is perfect as it is and finding solace in that realisation.

I am so grateful to @lukasmcfarlane for wanting to be apart of this and for his interpretation of the work. Also to @ninetyonefilms and his incredible skills behind the camera. Seriously, creating this project was a breeze with these two!!
