Strangers Crossing Paths


Meet my friend Per Apelmo from Sweden! He and I met last weekend at the Anna Halprin workshop. We were paired together for one exercise and witnessed each other’s moving investigations. He works in the field of expressive arts in Sweden and so I asked him if he would like to do a dance with me while he was still in the Bay Area.  He had a little time left in San Francisco today before he had to go back to Sweden so we met and put together a sweet little video for my blog.  Isn’t he awesome?  His son Carl was kind enough to videotape it for us.
