Jose & Martha

Today I spent a couple hours watching the surfers and the waves on Philbin Beach in Aquinnah, Martha’s Vineyard. I have no appetite personally for that kind of ride, but admire the focus and courage that it takes. Jose is grazing the island and Maria may follow.

Here is one video of the wave-riders:

I have just finished making Rabbit Hole,  a new solo for the exquisite Lorraine Chapman. She will perform it later this month at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire.

Lorraine is a master performer with an impressive resume and some serious ballet chops. She told me that she has wanted to work with me for twenty years.  I am deeply honored.

Making this dance was not easy. I ask that dancers leap into the turbulent, wild waters of the unknown, the mythic, the mystical.  That they give themselves over to the moment.  That they let go of what they know and step into the dark.

Lorraine was up for that challenge and what she has done with this work is dazzling. Watch for it!!!

As my book Our Horses, Ourselves: Discovering the Common Body comes closer to its actual premiere/opening/you-can-actually-hold-it-in-your-hand day, I am filled with so much appreciation for all the beauty, wisdom and effort by my collaborators of the last thirty-ish years.  The list is VERY long, and appears in the “Special Thanks” section of the book.  It begins and ends, of course, with Pam White, my love, inspiration and best friend of the last thirty-one years. It also includes all the horses, dancers, mentors, friends, collaborators, and those whose  stories and perspectives are woven into the book.  It does indeed, take a village!

You can pre-order the book here.
