Tonight was our first night on-site and I think we all really enjoyed it. We met at the parking lot and hiked in all together and I felt everyone’s energy sort of shift as we walked through the meadows with the sun setting on them and the dark, thickly forrested picnic areas. Everyone’s voices became more hushed and there was an unspoken reverence for the majestic redwood rooms we walked through and the sounds of birds and insects singing their final set of the day. I look forward to the rest of this workshop. I look forward to creating movement in the studio and bringing it into the woods, and I especially look forward to watching the girls create their own movement as they allow the woods to move them.
