“Knowing was a barrier which prevented learning. For a few moments he allowed himself merely to resonate, making no demands, asking no questions.”

Shlomit

n

Two days ago there was an intimate performance in Shahar’s garden where there is a 60 square-meeter stage. One of the solo performance was by Shlomit. Shahar told me she called a day or two before the performance and asked if she could take a part in the performance and Shahar welcomed her.

This was the first time I saw Shlomit perform (or at all for that matter) – it was a moving performance and I felt drawn to abstract images that were formed by the high contrast of her moving body and exposed skin within the black costume and settings.

The performance was an important one for me. It came after long months of hard work with less open and blessed interactions. The camera wireless setup broke down before the performance – and it took some time to get fixed – during this time I was thinking of staying out of the performance. I felt lost and disassociated in my creative work. This was a cherished reminder that (1) it is not really in my hands (2) it takes talented people and (3) space and patience to let moments of improvisation appear and crystallize. I got some great supportive feedback after the performance … I needed it.
