In our latest days of Leonard construction, we have ventured away from Chapter 1: the foam and, moved toward Chapter 2: the fabric. These two chapters in The Making of Leonard
had a bit of an overlap as you can see in the below pictures.
As these pictures show, we added the center piece to the dome that Shawn will secure to the… Continue

« exercer les images » contemporary dance training program

A COMMISSION. Geez Louise its been awhile since I've said that. I am happy and excited, but also more than a little scared right now. Some of you who are in the scene 1-for the money, 2-for the show etc. may say: whats the big honkin' deal, my company gets 3 commissions every 6 months...how do you think I put bread on the table?? Well its been about 11 years since I've actually been asked to come up with something FOR someone, as opposed to coming up with something just for the love of the… Continue

Important reminder of the relevance of Gregory Bateson
by Peter Harries-Jones
In honour of the centenary of Gregory Bateson’s birth (1904), this article revisits some of the themes of his posthumous publication, Angels Fear. Some of the book goes over ground that Bateson had covered in prior publications, yet it contains three new themes. The first of these concerned recursion. Generally unnoticed by the reviewers of the… Continue

So two weeks ago we took our cardboard model and began rebuilding it with the foam. To our surprise, this wasn't quite as hard as we had expected. We figured that some modifications might need to be made in order to compensate for the extra inch of thickness not accounted for with the cardboard; however, this was not the case. (yay!) Here is a super speedy video documenting the process of building the top portion of the dome and the lower jaw.
WARNING: This looks much more productive… Continue

I had this revelation that, in the process of creation, its not about your technique but more so about how fast you can translate THOUGHT INTO ACTION
. What you see is what you do. Technique is an afterthought. Sure there is a certain randomness that comes from being in the studio and letting impulse, gravity, weight, control you - but the more you "see" and can translate in real-time into bodily action, the more "true" your creation will be to your vision.
I envy graphic novel… Continue
