The performance "center // periphery : a sharing in three steps" and this reflection paper are the culminations of an identity crisis of what dance is and can be when there are two opposite binaries residing in my body and the research done to see if it is possible to express them at the same time. These two oppositions are contemporary dance and Chilean folklore dance.
The research has been both personal and mind opening to my surroundings. I have looked into the why’s and how’s of my movements; my inspirations, my goals, my (self-put) limitations. This reflection paper is the process and the culmination of a process that is and might be forever on-going. It is a long analysis of both my way of thinking and seeing myself, my dance, and the dance around me, and how I move. An analysis of my inspirations and where some ideas might have originated and how this translated into the performance center // periphery : a sharing in three steps.
The text has been structured into three, aligning them to the left, center, and right; like three steps being taken forwards. The idea behind this structure was taken from the performance itself and its dramaturgy of being divided into three ‘steps’.
This is my body; dancing, moving, sharing; trying to communicate, trying to express, trying to show my periphery and my center, trying to combine them.
