A Woman’s Intuition

 

Head heart

Monkey bones

Head heart

Feet rooted,

Writing Process

In the spring of 2017, I was finishing out a dance workshop. In the final session of the workshop, each person was invited to share a creation that emerged over the course of the five months. I’ve always been inspired by a performance I saw in college – a dance performed to a reading of Andrew Zawacki’s poem Georgia from his book Petals of Zero, Petals of One. So, for my final presentation, I wanted to write a poem and choreograph a short dance to pair with it. One of the themes we’d talked about was dancing from the heart vs. the head vs. the gut, and what it looked like to create movement from those three different places. It really resonated with me, and that’s where I got the inspiration for A Woman’s Intuition.
