new eyes

I saw this the other day:

It translates to something like:

“A true voyage of discovery is not to search for new land, but to have new eyes.”

In creative processes, we talk a lot about looking with fresh eyes. To attempt to see something as if for the first time. It’s a practice of testing your own assumptions and habits about what it is that you are seeing or experiencing.

I stumbled across this photo the other day. It was an attempt to help students understand video aspect ratios and resolutions. Talk about a helpful guide.

not for choreographic purposes

In the summer I was working with Eva Recacha in the studio at The Place in London and one of the piano chairs had a sign on it:

We all have objects that are clearly not for choreographic purposes and so I had some stickers made:

They are 4.5” x 2.7” (11.43cm x 6.86cm) and are essential kit for any choreographer. If you just drop me a line I’ll send you one or a set of four (just let me know) for free.
