I want to relate to my dance the same way the audience does. I want it to be separate from both of us, and we're both looking at it and we're both relating through it to our existence, our momentary existence, with our sense of future and sense of past, yes, what we bring to it, but mostly with our vitality of awakening to the moment through paying close attention to a fabrication.
