A love letter to humanity, A Celebration in Existing at All
The Love Letter Series is a series of hand written letters to the self, cultivated through posed questions, vocalised movements and self-exploration.
‘The Love Letter Series’ is a culmination of solos that celebrate each individual’s current existence. The solos stand testament to the many questions asked of oneself and the brutal honesty that is required to celebrate your current existence.
In embracing our thoughts, feelings and the vibrations that wave through us, we can cultivate a canvas (solo) that is honest and truthful to our current existence, our current storyline and our current being. It is not who we want to be or who we have been, it is an honest representation of what we are in the moment of creating it, which can then guide, support and nurture our future self to a place of integrity and clarity.
Facilitating and creating alongside the Edge Hill University students was a true pleasure with many moments of discoveries, elevation and joy. In creating this work, the understanding became clear that it is an experience rather than a body of work. An experience for both the mover and the observer which, can change every time you encounter it.
