fractalpic1And so, with less than a week to go, I am turning my thoughts back to my research in readiness for my new work Fractal.

Next week sees the eagerly awaited period which sees the dancers return back to the studio, when I will be working with them to create Fractal.

To a mathematician a fractal is exceptionally difficult to define, and indeed there are differing theories ranging from geometrical patterns to processes in time.  However I will be looking at the part of a fractal that deals with self similarity.  For example how a piece of broccoli can be very similar to the whole thing; the tiny intricate detail that is involved.

With this detail and intricacy considered I will be setting the material to the divinely complex English Suite no 3 by JS Bach.  Have a listen to one of the tracks here ~

I’m sitting in my kitchen looking out at the wonderful autumn colour and seeing the wonder of nature all around, inspiration at its most modest time.  Having just made the first of my Christmas goodies, some lovely Elderberry Gin, time to start thinking of the earth going to sleep, but our plans and ideas coming to full fruition.
We’ll be blogging our time in the studio, please join us on our journey …
