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.
