Dark as a Raven, Bold as a Robin
The Rogue Rules of Aesthetic
Satire is more appealing than soap-boxing
The general population will alway look for meaning/ story so draw on something that resonates with you from outside the dance world as a foundation or entry point to your choreography
No matter how far we come in the dance world you're always judged by how well you can get on your leg
Everyone knows the cliche “If we don’t learn history we are dome to repeat” but in looking at our current politics we are in a looping battle between tradition and progression that no one can resolve. Stuck questioning why certain things needed to change, like Math but shaking our heads in disbelief as other things never can move forward. Sadly power is game and means to keep it are ancient and fix and regardless of how progressive your ideology is, concepts like the have vs the have-nots and the elite vs the unwashed masses exist because power cannot be equally shared. Or so the people in power keep telling us.
