For me, the craziest thing about 2020 is that I was in Bangladesh when Covid-19 hit the world. I flew home earlier than planned, crawled into my bed, and woke up to a Stay-At-Home order.
We were in Dhaka, the heart of the country, for five weeks. I had never been to any place like Bangladesh, and let me tell you, it was an awakening.
My objective was to use my own movement knowledge and experience to enhance the physicality of the Bengali dancers. Training 30 other bodies and stripping away comfortability for each of us to build it all back up anew. Though many barriers were present between movement practices, language, and cultures. We were all just humans in a room brought together for a common purpose.
