Welcome to my living room


We’ve been seeing each other for a few weeks now.  You seem pretty friendly, not overly judgemental.  I’m feeling like we might be ready for the next step. Welcome to my living room.  This is how I begin to create almost everything I do: In my living room and in my pajamas.  This was difficult for me to decide to post.  It is definitely an unfinished product.  A study of gesture and minimalism. I was hoping to cut it but the musicality is just too important so I’ve posted all of it with all the non-interesting bits intact. oh well.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love gesture. I love the moment where gesture becomes dance or where dance becomes gesture. This was my exploration of that.
