It seems I’ve deviated from your gaze,
Hiding safely inside April’s coy dews,
Longing for a crystal world of my own.
Smiles, tears, dancing all my life,
dreams as the north wind blows restlessly,
to bleed, to rest in penance ever willingly,
and to wake at dawn still, holding a fragment
of life’s lamenting song in billowing cold.
But do not worry, my friend,
Wherever you go,
I am walking right behind you.
This spring has been a very busy season for me since I’m working on a few dance projects at the same time on tight deadlines. Nevertheless, I am happy to share this new dance of mine. It was inspire by a beautiful Indian song and I tested it out as a preliminary work for a site dance project. Hope you enjoy!
