Sadness is anger turned inward.
We all heard the Freudian theory a few times at least, and have experienced it for ourselves many times, yet, we are still unsure on how to process the feeling. How to express it without crossing the fine line that society considers acceptable, asking ourselves the eternal question:
Did I go too far? And more often than not: Did I say all I wanted to say? Leading us to the conclusion that most of the time we fail to communicate
the totality of what the source of our initial frustration was about.
And what happens when we don’t express those emotions? Well, our bodies react physically, as well as they do emotionally, and that’s where I would like to base my work.
The way we feel has an impact on our muscles, and those, have an influence on the quality of our movement. Whether we choose to portray this in a voluntary and conscious way or if we let them be involuntary for once, the repercussions of the emotions on the body are undeniable.
Dancers in particular are known for seeking perfection on many levels, including a total mastering and control of their muscles abilities. But what If
instead of focusing on control, we focus on letting go? Can we go even further with our dancing by doing so? And what if instead of seeking victory in motion, we take a moment to analyze and appreciate the falls, the drops, the breaking parts, the failure of the muscles, and include this to our dancing? Will its dimensions change by adding the FRACTURE A?
