Documentation & reflection on Burns Dance Media rehearsals and projects
Text, films, performances, et al. that inspire me
I took a much needed vacation to visit my family and had the opportunity to visit Kunst-Stoff Arts in San Francisco for the first time for some much needed "GUT motives" Advanced Physical Practice w/ Kathleen Hermesdorf & Albert Mathias
. The class was wonderful and juicy with such rich content and powerful energy. It's amazing how Albert and Kathleen can ramp up a space even when there are only about 13 people!
is not in the best part of town and is weirdly above a Burger King (I passed the fry kitchen on the way to class), but like with many dance spaces, once you enter the studio, all else falls away. The feel of class was pumped and hard-core. I found the dancers in the class to have a softer quality than those in NYC, but a really fun and welcoming vibe.
I'm sorry I wasn't able to take more of the classes, but recommend "GUT motives" to anyone visiting the San Fran dance scene.
Other highlights while in CA: We visited Carmel & Monterey Bay, took a 5 mile hike around Elephant & Black Mountain at Hidden Villa
, and walked to see over 100 elephant seals in Ano Nuevo
Hope all's holidays went well!
