In a one hour session I was treated with BLEED by Tere O’Connor last night. I was reminded that the body communicates constantly. There were moments of stillness and waiting. I can see the dancers’ eyes looking at each other and silently communicating. The tension grew to impetus and that’s when movement erupted. Even at rest the bodies are telling me something – whether they’re sleeping, stunned, actively seeking comfort… the bodies won’t stop talking. The smallest gestures of the piece spoke the loudest like a turn of the head.
