Quotes from Augusto Boal

"Knowledge and health are power, so economic elites try to conceal knowledge and destroy health. An ignorant and debilitated people is more easily dominated. It was US Senator Barry Goldwater who said that poverty is necessary to capitalism, since it facilitates the negotiation of salaries and conditions of work: the workers are afraid of losing their jobs."

I asked Mark, "Who is God?"
He replied "He takes care to Jesus and he makes neon, beautiful neon."

streams of thought...

listen to the tiny drips of anxiety seeping relentlessly from my tiny thoughts that create something but not anything real but more of a lifeline

speed along the little highways of deep resonation, depth around a pool of ever shrinking possibilities that widen this perception into a space that easily fits on the pin of a head

bottom out the corresponding virtue of a magical giant who resides in my mouth

he will not expunge the virtue of his own brilliantly flying bullet

I am a word that drips from my heart without the mindless virtue of knowing a soul exists there

Up to what?

Playing with my three year old son

Teaching & choreographing for highly talented young dancers

Creating work for MFA courses

Worrying incessantly about Tommy's paper

Creating performance opportunities for my dancers

Occasionally trying to hang out with friends

reading, reading, reading (loving Sensorium)

Family is tight and I am so grateful for all of them: Mom, Ann, Wayne, Dad

Compiling dance phrases from class for thesis work

Watching the gorgeous fall colors

Journey of the Water Woman

Expanded Field project

Water as transformer of reality.
Soften the gaze and the scene changes
sharpen the focus and it returns
Allow, just simply allow, and something
else altogether happens.
