*It was one big dance and everybody was connected to each other. I felt a magnetism towards the middle of the room, with all of us. Super nice strong focus on the jam. Nice awareness of the space.
*I had the feeling of being moved all the time and I didn’t have to go anywhere or do anything. It was just happening to me. I might have had ideas of what could happen but in fact I was moved inwardly or outwardly without making decisions by myself.
*I felt a strong connection. It was easy to get in and out of contact. It was all like one dance.
*Collision of impulse from movement with cultural norm… empathic and connection of humor when a hand almost relaxed into a position of landing softly on someone else’s butt.
*Back to back sitting pair. When she left I expected a sense of emptiness but it didn’t occur.
*I loved the moment when everyone was lying still and that I could take photos … it was an image of connection.
*In the small dance I found a connection with the other groups which was more in front than behind. (comment: afterwards we found out, that Geneva – in our backs- had shifted their time schedule and had started 2 hrs. later…) I felt only one dance the whole time and that I actually danced with everyone here.
*I love the small dance. It is really not to be forgotten.
*For me the whole thing changed after we had the moment all together in the middle. Before that I disengaged first mentally before physically ending a dance. After that I was not thinking any more and it felt better.
*It was beautiful. Although there were a few moments when the impulse to end a dance came not from me. I felt deserted. I also found a beautiful rolling and it was absolutely like swimming. I was looking at the pretty picture of a foot in my hand and loved the telescoping idea. That was new for me.
*I felt very relaxed watching people and watching dances. It was like looking at a landscape and sometimes the landscape looked back.
*In the beginning I felt alarmed and uncomfortable because I realized it was all contact. I wasn’t sure if I really wanted this. There was a moment when I felt I had to leave. And I stepped over this moment and looked at people and started to feel the floor and the other people. And then I was in and there was no thought anymore. I was just in.
*I felt very accepted soloing and it was very easy. Sometimes I’m very much bored with myself. Today I wasn’t. It was leading me to nice coincidences or crashes or tangents.
*I witnessed a moment of intimacy when one was facing the wall and another person was rolling by the wall. They stood very close, looked at each other and smiled. very sweet.
*I find it interesting to experience the diversity in the bodies in smoothness and tonus. I had many dances and different dances. It was like shopping bodies and body texture.
*As soon as I entered the score, I forgot about it. That always happens to me.
*For me it was the opposite. I thought about the score again and again. I like the idea of taking it home and putting it into different situations.
*I enjoyed the fact that there seemed to be a common agreement about that neither grazing nor engagement had more value than the other. There was no judgment.
*Some changes of dancing partners went so quickly that I felt a very strong difference in the quality of the contact. One was dynamic and the next was smooth and slow.
*Grateful theory before… so much wanting and planning wonderful thousand possibilities
