Kathak Fusion – Liking my own works!

It’s not easy watching my own dance videos. If I wait a year or two, it makes a huge difference. I have enough distance to see it with less tension and more generosity. In this case, I had the good fortune to have my friend Cherie Sampson, edit three performances into one video, capturing and overlaying, the best moments into the whole. What a gift. Now I look at it and enjoy it even more. My friend Tim Britton, well known Irish musician and sound guy (and player and maker of Ullean pipes) mixed the two tracks. Sheila Chandra and Zakir Hussein do not know they jammed for me. I put all my new favorite moves in with my beloved Kathak moves and combined choreography with improv. I performed this piece in a show put on by Hilary Jordan, contemporary dancer, health practitioner, Druidess – in training, and a good friend. And the pants are made by me own self, even tho my mother said Capricorns can’t sew. So you get the theme, discovering one’s own talents and rediscovering pieces from a while back that are really nice to savor. Enjoy.
