#8 Juliette Binoche and Akram Khan , in-I probably 2008
Τhe emotions that derive from an actress’ body meet the physicality of a dancer’s body. A great ecstatic combination.
A tribute for Akram Khan’s Dance Company 20th year in action.
It’s an extraordinary time to be the occupant of a human body, isn’t it? We’re considering the body’s limits, its strength and vulnerabilities, nearly all the time. We’re measuring the distance between our bodies and others’, acclimating to breathing through layers of paper or cloth. The necessity of physically being somewhere — whether at work, school, the bookstore, the bar — has been eliminated in favor of virtual congress.
“So where is there but the body to live?” asks Bin Ramke in his poem “Something to Say.” I think about this line a lot. Many of us are occupied lately with protecting our bodies, with protecting and nurturing the bodies of those we love. We’re sorting out how we negotiate the space around us safely. Focusing on how many steps we take or pounds we lift is one way of staying aware of and comfortable in the physical world. It’s one way of residing in a body, of spreading out, of making ourselves at home.

The difficulty of being alone may be felt most keenly in the most intimate circumstances, in the darkness of the marriage bed: one centimeter and a thousand miles apart, or in the silence around a tiny crowded kitchen table. But to feel alone in the presence of others is also to understand the singularity of human existence whilst experiencing the deep physical current that binds us to others whether we want that binding or no: aloneness can measure togetherness even through a sense of distance.

They smiled at her, asked if she was tired and stroked her cheek. A large part of my relationship with Heidi was based on me carrying her. It was the basis of our relationship.
from David Toop’s Blog Fold - thinking about physical gesture and sounds of labour
Sometimes it may feel like you are just a body
with feelings trapped inside.
Cast off from reality, you respond
to your spirit animals, to anger,
to joy, to hope, to sadness, and to grief.
Take a moment, a few seconds you can spare
to sit with yourself, and these feelings
who you are so used to being guided by;
just take a moment, don’t converse
but listen to your chest heaving up
your chest, your heart, your blood
the life that gives you form and substance:
Step aside from those guides, your feelings,
just for a moment, put them aside.
I promise you, that you will find it easier,
just for this moment, to breathe and to be alive.
