Graceland Opening Night

Graceland Opening Night

Just after the final dress rehearsal last night, I remembered my Aikido teacher, Inaba Minoru Sensei, questioning how one might use budo (martial arts) against natural disasters. He was questioning what we were training for. I wondered if I would be happy if this was the last show I made. I wondered if the piece spoke meaningfully about my experience of the world – if it fought against my frustrations and attempted to communicate my deepest concerns. Thinking about that made me nervous. But I’m glad I did.
