WE- second post: How can I make it accessible?

As the qualities and the layers of the work are getting more clear, I'm busy with thinking HOW CAN I MAKE IT ACCESSIBLE?
How can I create something that can touch different people, from different places, with different interests and different backgrounds.
I need to find something that is common for EVERYBODY. something global. Something universal. something that is beyond the specificity of what I do, and then, when I catch them, I can slowly and gradually lead them by the hand into my world.

Things that we can recognise and connect to are the things that we know from ourselves.
We can recognise when someone is having fun because we know how it feels to have fun.
We can identify with someone how experience loss if we experienced loss.
We feel empathy towards someone who is having a hard time because we know it is hard.
We get touched by witnessing moments and actions that we once passed through.

By understanding and analysing that, I realised the importance of humanity or reflecting humanity through my work.
I need to irrigate the human elements that are anyway existing in the process, and build the work (or we can call it the piece) in parallel to that.
What do I mean? How does it suppose to happen? Well, lets take one of examples that I gave before- FUN. Fun is something that we are experiencing together in rehearsals and outside of it anyway, so why not to bring it into the work?

This way of thinking and approaching brings me (back) to the idea of applications. Why not to use our experiences, friendships, losses, happiness, sadness and all the rest, in different fields of our lives? Why should we separate it? Why would I want to avoid something that can make my work and approach so ACCESSIBLE? Why would I want to have only "dance people" in the audience when I can have different people in the audience?
If the work is directed to the dance audience, it doesn't make sense that T'ai Chi practitioners, film-makers or soccer players will connect to it. But if its directed to people, then people will connect to it.

So how much of the process and the energy should be invested in thinking about the audience? Well, thats a whole other discussion…


Curiosity is being evoked when we recognise something which has something that we can connect to, but that we don't know as much as we want to know about it.
When we can identify with something but we are not sure why.
When we see that there is quality, urge and passion that can be equal to ours, but in a different form.
Same but different.
