As I read other entries this morning about various women and their concerns and questions. I am inspired to add to the dialogue. I just spent last night with another fellow pulsewire member as well as dancer and friend discussing a loss of female conversation. Then, I spent the morning reading and talking with women from around the world and I discovered that a huge community is available to me here. So, I thought I would share my quesions and dialogue with you.
We spent a lot of time discussing our desire for a stronger dance community in Portland, more dailly classes and a stronger female community. Any suggestions? Any insights? Feel free to share.
These topics arose because I am currently working on a solo piece at the moment about female memory. I am struggling on many folds. One being, how to construct time and space to consistently work. Any suggestions? Distraction seems so constant.
The second being, a continual debate that I am having with myself on the topic of memory, particulary dealing with the lost women in our lives. How much of memory is b/c we have deemed to be that way? And how much of memory is a haunting force that tweaks and aches to be heard? How much is lost and more than this, how is any of this relavant and/or important?
Any thoughts on the subjects, any suggestions? Any stories or women that spring to mind here?
Okay thanks for listening to my thoughts and rambles.
