“Your blessing is to know
That even the desire for paradise is servile.
The game is divine because there is no promise or hope of gain. (…)
Your freedom is to know
that every goal of victory, every expectation of applause is servile.
Your beauty is not ashamed of abasements or spitting.
Other, other is its modesty.
And your unparalleled grace, ultimate, is that your beauty
does not concern you.”
Elsa Morante, Il mondo salvato dai ragazzini
In my path yoga and dance exist in the same space.
They are often practiced in the same room, the notes I take share the same notebook.
Sometimes, when I start using a workbook, its pages are divided like this: the front is for the notes about dance, the back there should be notes about yoga, but this division doesn’t last long and everything starts inevitably intersected.
Intersected or confused, that gets immediately a bad reputation. I suffer from it myself when at the beginning of notebook I demand order and distinction.
Really I consider this verb so interesting: from the latin “cum-fundere”, near to overlaps and to cross, that is what reflect more my real life, where they are indeed inextricably linked.
Dance is everywhere. And every time I see it, I should have more of it, I want it to better be seen, or to do it in my way. Yoga is the dance seen from within, from behind, a way to calmly see the dance in the particular, in the infinitesimal.
