July 10th, “95 Rituals (for Anna Halprin)”

Performance project by inkBoat, directed by Shinichi Iova-Koga, presented by Dancers’ Group.

We only stayed for 30 minutes because Alice got hungry.




The light, sound, colors, and movement were – yes, I am going to say it – perfect. For this perfection has to do with the totality of my experience, of seeing Alice transfixed (if only for 5 minutes at a time) by the movement, the warmth of the sun (so rare in July!), and my own delight.  The best –  when a dancer handed Alice a piece of tissue paper (on it was written, “who do you honor in your life?”).  Alice’s eyes were so wide and bright as she whispered: “thank you.”  The moment stayed with me all night – I was wrapped in happy.
