“We are told that actions speak louder than words. But I wonder, do they? Our words, however we communicate them, are just as powerful. Whether we speak the words with our own voices, type them with our eyes, or communicate them non-verbally to someone who speaks them for us, words are among our most powerful tools.” – Martin Pistorius
How will you use your words today? With others, with yourself?
Thanks Martin for this reminder!
Super big thanks to Sarah Prescimone, who was in my 2nd year class at Fontys Academy from Jan – April 2015, for making this cool video!
Hey everyone, Bonjour à tous, There are still lots of things happening this summer at Sarahcademy: workshops, open day (come try the classes!) and the new term starts on the 14th Sept.
Performing the Present classes start the 15th Sept, and I have floor work workshops with Wisper again.
Check the calendar/agenda page for all details!
Also SoloConversations Dance Collective is back in rehearsals for The Grave is Yawning which premieres in March 2016 in Théâtre de la Vie (Brussels).
The Impulstanz programme is (almost) out! Here’s a sneak peak at what I’ll be offering this year… I’ll also be speaking at the IDOCDE teachers’ symposium again, this time with “Being & Doing Sexy”
AND performing “Body Rhymes” as part of a workshop (see performance page!).
If you are in the mud, no problem – accept you are there, and work out the best way of swimming out (presuming you want to get out).
I wish you fins and wings, and I am always there to offer a hand up! See my coaching pages.
One of many performances during the competition…because pure MCing is not enough for me!
“The Girls” performed my Pole Show Girl choreographies again in Sarahcademy’s “Searching for Love” show on Saturday as part of Pole Fusion Festival @ La Venerie. I was proudly in the audience!
This picture is with Patricia, from the “Big Spender” number. Big thanks to Guy Dubreucq!
On Sunday, however, I was up onstage as Mistress of Ceremonies for the Pole Fusion Competition – introducing competitors, singing, playing ukulele, improvising some contemporary floorwork & pole etc etc etc :). The winner was Joy Sevinc Gurmen from Turkey – well deserved!!!
Super big thanks to Stan Arte Vizion for these photos!!!!
Now that Body Rhymes (improvised spoken word poetry & movement) has been outed a few times around Europe including this summer at Berlin ImproXchange – Performing Presence, I am letting some of my writing see the public light of day. You’ll find it under Writing in the side bar – mostly poems, and some prose tidbits. Enjoy!
