Lucidez Dance Logo Version the one Bernie made me

After performing with Unika Dance Events in early February, I’ve come to Sevilla for a month of intensive Flamenco.

I notice that the relative calmness and loneliness I feel here are good for my creativity and #wtgrief keeps developing slowly but surely.

In other news our bid to funding from the Wandsworth Arts Council for the fourth Kaleidoscopic Arts Platform has been successful,

so save the date: May 19th!

My time in Santiago and Latin America has come to an end with a last incredible trip to Panama and Colombia.

Back in London I performed a Samba show for Unika Dance Events for New Year’s Eve and defined my goals for 2017.

I’m an Equity member now and look forwards to taking class, performing and taking Kaleidscopic Arts to the next, funded level!

Happpy New Year!

This journey took me through the Atacama desert and along the Pacific coast of Chile to Arequipa, Cusco and Lima in Peru. It took me through desert, sea, mountains and I saw Inka, colonial and contemporary culture, architecture, work and life.

Machu Picchu truly was a mesmerising and energetic place and I am so thankful for the opportunity to visit such a once in a lifetime place, but the value lies in the abundance of observations and experiences I was allowed to make in the spectacular as well as the every day places. Once again I wonder about complex environmental and societal questions. Will I ever find satisfactory answers?

I've had the opportunity to travel to Easter Island recently and it's been a most wonderful trip. Aside from enjoying the spectacular nature and feeling of fresh air and freedom, the island's history and its remains invited me to ponder culture and civilisation.

How do we create and define these?

How do they flourish, why do they decline?

A short trip to Lima afterwards contrasted starkly with the peaceful nature of the tiny island in the middle of the ocean. Lima was intensive, loud and overwhelmingly full of impressions. I'm looking forwards to spending a few more days there later this year.

These travels have allowed me to experience some of the most impressive nature on our planet and I take away many thoughts about nature, Earth and our position within the universe as well as about different countries and peoples and our life together.

I am hugely thankful that I am able to be here and go on these adventures and very aware of my privilege.

It’s incredible, barely comprehensible, that since the big bang a universe has evolved with suns, stars, planets and so on and that at least on one of those life began and evolved to be extremely varied.

What responsibility do we have for each other and for our planet? How can we share our planet's resources fairly with each other and without exploiting nature?

The nature I encountered in Argentina has mesmerised me. Vast, powerful, overwhelming, gorgeous, awe-inspiring.

I've arrived in Santiago last week and I'm settling into city life again. I'm finding out about yoga, pilates, dance and art that's on offer. There's lots going on even in the quiet month of February. It will take a while to get my bearings. Living close to the cultural centre Gabriela Mistral is a blessing!

My journey to Chile is beginning and for the month of January I will be travelling to Buenos Aires, Puerto Madryn, El Calafate and Bariloche in Argentina. I will arrive in Santiago in February. Looking forwards to the unknown.

In January I will move to Santiago de Chile for a year. I'm extremely looking forwards to this adventure and can't wait to discover the city, its dance and its culture. While I'm away my work for Kaleidoscopic Arts will continue, I will research for my choreographic practice and I'm open to whatever will come my way. Sadly this means my Christmas and New Year's Eve shows with Unika Dance Events will be my last and I will truly miss this work and the group.
