I just want to check in with you and make sure I am still learning.
I’m just a bit worried that I have fallen into that trap of seeing myself in the role of teacher and somehow mistakenly believing that learning is about what my students do.
When I am teaching learning feels alive in me.
Good, that’s good.
And I am always exploring movement and seeking to grow my capacity as a performer.
However, it has been a phase of building new things and I wonder if my questions about how I move have been a little quiet.
Or have they?
Perhaps it is that I am not in any formal study right now and I am craving that?
Or a specific teacher to help guide me deeper?
Maybe I feel like my learning is sitting too surface and I want to dive deeper but am not quite sure how to do that on my own.
Or is it just that I need to carve out the space to be in my studio spending deep time being curious and sound and movement and story?
If I look at it subjectively it would be difficult to accuse me of not being in a process of learning. It is kind of my default way of being in the world.
I just want to remember the importance of my curiosity.
Learning, always learning.
