How are you involved in In-Finite?

I became involved with IJAD Dance Company’s In-Finite recently. I am an interactive performer in the process and am a secret holder and distributer. I am looking forward to creating personal relationships with anonymous, trusting participants, whilst having others observe this exchange. There is something very special about live dance, and proximity in which it happens… In-Finite will explore this personal relationship, which I find excites the performer and the audience.
What about your own secret?

All secrets are personal which is why they are a secret. Some are dark and others are humorous. It’s interesting to categorise secrets in accordance to what makes them a secret? My secret relates to a personal relationship, it deals with trust and lacking in trust. This has had a big impact on my relationship with important figures in my life. My secret can be saddening, but it deals with my personal development through such relationships.

 In-Finite comes to Rich Mix on 8th March 2013. For bookings click here.
