ABOUT THE PROCESS
It has been an interesting process for all of us – myself, Martin and the participants – getting to know each other and understand what the process is. It made me think a lot about trust and how trust simply takes time. It also made me think of everybody’s different perceptions of the reality that we are all sharing in the same moment. How affected we are by our upbringing and the generation we’ve each grown up with. I also noticed how much we all want to find connection and joy. Both Martin and I felt these six people were so courageous to enter the project which wasn’t a dance film as one might imagine a dance film to be, and to take a leap of faith and surrender to a process regardless of the outcome. I think many would consider the way we approached making this film to be quite unconventional. We didn’t enter with a pre-conceived idea of what the film would look like. We did enter with a few fimling ideas we are interested to try and a loose theme about ‘home and dancing’ but mostly it was unknown. The film essentially grows out of the process of meeting, spending time, sharing stories and listening to each other as well as what comes from the movement / dance workshops. For me, the process is just as important and the end result, perhaps even more important.
