Vida Midgelow visits OSU 11.18/19.14 to dialogue with us on practice as research, in words and in movement. Today she enables us to write and improvise through decision/tasks. We move, speak, and write as witness and mover, in first and third person. Following is an excerpt of reflexive writing during this process:
I am fatigued, anxious and pent-up. I am without energy for releasing – too tired and behind to muster release. I am grateful for my ‘problems’. I am resistant to the academy (though I worked hard to be here and came in eyes open). I am hungry for more making. I am quiet and screaming for other. My body longs for soothing. I am guilty and interested. I am breathing and seeing heart all around me. I am under the same sky as everyone else. I am electric – a dull buzzing of white noise dialed up to lightning.
