Five minutes of dancing.... in process

Hi there - I've been gone a while -
I admit it - but in that time, we were invited to take part in AEP, and thanks to that program, we've had our first group interview for MAPPING HOME -
(how completely cool it was too!)
There will be more coming soon - the events page on our website will fill up quickly, you just watch....

With many thanks to the brave individuals who came and shared their thoughts with us, I offer you our first bit work to come from the interviews: MAPPING HOME / this rock

The phrase work was created by Zoe and Hilary as they zoomed in on aspects of one of our interviewees who spoke of a rock on the tip of an island - each paid attention to a different aspect, one was focused on water, the other, on the foundation of rock...

This, as always, is a very first step - the first version is just their phrases put together as a duet.  Then as I was watching, I felt I wanted another layer....  So as always, layers lead to meaning, and I feel like we've hit a good groove with this beginning.
