“The Church says: the body is a sin. Science says: the body is a machine. Advertising says: The body is a business.
The Body says: I am a fiesta.”
~ Eduardo Galeano
I saw Rachel Brice dance for the first time when I was 17 years old in a crowded little theater in Albuquerque, NM. Matter stretched, time folded in on itself, and no one took a breath for the entire dance. I swear. I left that theater knowing not only what I wanted to be when I grew up, but what art could do for someone. This piece makes my heart ache for dance all over again. RB, you destroy me every time <3
I am but a world, some flesh and bones to keep it in.
