Greetings -
I was struck by Annie Abrahams' comments on the Covid siege and medicalized working conditions, 
her reference to students in Amsterdam demanding "physical education."  And I wondered how others,
who might teach/work in performance, experience this at the moment? (I felt this week that I had become
the only physical teacher left in my art school, as pressure from management had moved all classes to
the hard-to survive zoomland) and compliance is the new catchword.

Am also happy sharing my new performance work with you, 
&   I welcome your feedback.....

The film was edited after I got invited to write about my experience as a choreographer being in lockdown in an inter-pandemic era, and my
"Electric Dance, or How to Talk with Birds" will appear shortly in Critical Stages/Scènes Critiques #22
(http://www.critical-stages.org), alongside other theatre artists's reflections on what Annie called the unfulfilled promises.

thank you for watching
