A Handbook for Ecstatic Survival

A Handbook for Ecstatic Survival

"I'm trying to write A Handbook for Ecstatic Survival. When I began it, perhaps 10 years ago, the prospect of ecstasy was somewhat stronger, both personally and in the world around me.

Dance of course is the medium and the message but also a window on existence that engagement in an artform gives.

The dancer can be instrument, performer, and creator. In music a singer could also be all three but the dancer has much more matter to deal with.

Dance as an artform requires many years of work - Martha Graham said 10 years.

It's not that you won't have mastered all the physical demands before that, but it takes 10 years to make a single gesture as your real self."
