Today, I’d like to talk a little bit (that’s a lie, this post is really long) about creativity, because I keep being reminded how it can be part of many different areas of one’s life, and I enjoy it every time.
My job is a creative one: I’m a dance artist and choreographer. I spend a lot of my time imagining projects, creatively responding to assignements, trying to facilitate someone else’s or my own artistic vision. And the medium that my creativity best expresses itself in is dance, movement and the body.
I really got into crafts a few years ago, when I had very little work as a dancer and really needed to acheive things and be creative. I needed to see the beginning and the end of one given project, in a much shorter amount of time than making a dance work would. So I started sewing and knitting more, I started taking pictures, cooking and generally making stuff.
