DAS Choreography: between the is and the could be - Thea Patterson

Part of DAS Graduate School

There is a gap in the middle where it might just happen, and probably will. A space where it is, or where it isn’t or where it could be…. Can we rethink this space? Can we linger there, wait, wait and see? This hesitation carves time out of time. In it’s withholding, every hesitation interrupts the performance of its charge, it makes time, it brackets space, it glimmers.
Slide, follow, bubble, attune. Invite, invoke, abandon.
Include, exclude, converge, merge, and divide.

Dance the shadow.

Listen, propose, drop, and follow…wait…wait…hold, let go…go, let go…go.
We glimmer this space into being.
