For me the artist’s job is to constantly gather knowledge: history, futurism, life experiences, personal intuition, the origins of milk, other artists, a movement, nature, the economy, politics, global issues, a ball, an airplane.
Digesting this information the artist then communicates their findings through the best way they can.
For me circus and dance is one of the most difficult and rewarding art forms of communication. With no text and with the exact situation occurring only once in space and time: thoughts and ideas are translated from one person to another.
For me why the use of movement is important is that it is interpretable by the viewer. Due to the active viewer interpreting; the connection (when it happens) is strong and personal.
TeaTime allows me to hone in on the skill of communicating in this way and to communicate feelings and thoughts that I have found to be important.
