We talk about dance as an art form when it is created, taught and explored in a non-traditional environment with non-traditional doers.
Exploring Her Own Access and Excellence
PODCAST BY SILVA LAUKKANEN TEXT BY EMMALY WIEDERHOLT
In this episode of DanceCast, Silva interviews India Harville, a dance artist and teacher in the Bay Area.
India shares her journey to inclusive dance through yoga, body work, and her ongoing experience with
temporary paralysis. She also describes her recent one-woman show, Enough, which explored a
recovery process for her recurring feelings of not feeling black enough, disabled enough, or able-bodied
enough, as well as her future goal of making a video piece about dancers who cannot regularly and
easily leave their homes. She discusses how to track progress and measure rigor when common
assessments cannot apply to her.
Maylis was visiting me here in the US after dancing and studying with Axis Dance Co in their annual summer intensive. While we were finishing our lunch we chatted about her work and future plans. Maylis shared her visions for her next choreographies and where she is currently with her own work. Thank you Maylis for being so open and willing to share.
