The Power Of 3 Tour 2015 continues…
After many delays and hours of travel, we find ourselves stepping into a beautiful castle. To me it feels like I am staying in a museum; art everywhere and interesting design and architectural features
The tour is offering a wonderful balance of dance and relaxation, it feels completely backwards to be on the receiving end of hospitality and service from the Princess and her family instead of offering it.  They are all so kind and it’s wonderful being welcomed into their home.imageimage
Our “stage” is the mirrored ballroom of the castle – spinning around the room and being able to catch a glimpse of yourself is magical, indeed everything about this place keeps surprising us with magical moments.
We have reworked Gary’s piece from duet to trio. The movement hasn’t changed but it has altered the relationships between the three of us in the space. It’s interesting as it leaves room imagefor doubt, but also a nice sense of ownership as we have the choice and ability to change the state by simply walking into the space or not. I think Gary has some surprises to put into action for the performance, a sense of the unknown. That’s quite an exciting concept to look forward to.
Sue’s piece feels different from before, not only because we’ve altered the spacing to work within he round, but also because the space is so vast it allows me to regain a sense of the freedom which I had in creating the work. The space is so big and I have room to push the boundaries and travel which is something which has always driven my movement.
I really look forward to the performance and the rest of my time here in Namedy.

But for now I’m going to continue sunbathing (like in Picasso’s Three Bathers) by the Rhine.
