|Dancing Through The Seasons|
Greetings from my home within the traditional territory of the Yuułuʔiłʔatḥ (which means “People of the safe harbour” in the local nuučaan̓uɫ language).
I hope you are healthy and finding your way through the uncertainties of our time. We are confronting many so daunting realities; and the end of summer and start of autumn feels really different this year. Despite everything, daily life goes on and we continue adapting.
I anticipated being less busy as a result of the pandemic, but in fact behind the scenes, exciting opportunities and projects keep bubbling along.
In a way I am experiencing this time as a waking dream. Some things keep morphing and shifting out of reach. People and ideas disappear, then reappear, and suddenly I am swept into a new creative confluence. Sometimes I am a frozen witness unable to act; other times, I’m completely in my flow dancing with abandon and fully alive.
My dance work is helping me get through these days and for this I am grateful. I hope you are also able to engage creatively, immersed in your own projects and following artists who inspire you.
Wishing you well,
Julia Taffe, Artistic Director, Aeriosa
