Thinking about Bodies & Control

I am looking toward the Opening of Chaotic Bodies this Thursday at Mile Zero Dance – and not surprisingly, I am thinking a great deal about relationship, space, and how our bodies convey information.

And there it was … gone!

21st Century Nesting Practices has closed, and it’s all been packed and stored away again.
