exxxPloratIonsssz iN style.
we all have it.
those clothes you’re wearing?
yeah, they present a certain STYLE
a certain . . . idea i get when i look at you.
that food you’re eating?
cigarette you’re smoking?
smoothie you’re slurping?
is a part of your style.
i have a hat for every day of the week
fabric for every mood
an adornment for every attitude
. . role playing seeking hiding. .
but what’s my style when I MOVE?
is it the same as my personal style, or has my personal style been clouded/confused into a distorted mockingbird or the styles i’ve been privy to?
i decided to take a look at my past styles, and with momo’s help, began to explore my self destructive style. I also personally wished to explore my shadow side, as it has up until now, not been shared through dance in this way. This for me is also in exploration in RVAstyle – what i’m calling the style I’ve absorbed from living, breathing, working, and exploring in Richmond, Virginia.
it can also be quirky kooky goofy loopy, an unleashing of the inner “freak”
I also went to Maymont- a park I frequent often, to explore NATURE’s style. Nature’s freestyle is something that I would like to incorporate into my own freestyle.
soft caress of the wind
branches swaying softy
a twig suddenly falls
a bird soars overhead
For now- my style is very much INBETWEEN. Paying attention to style has been a deep exploration for me. I can’t wait to see how all of our unique styles unfold freeeeeely here, blossoming everywhere!
