San Falcione Dancescapes #2: “Between Stone and Sky,” “Tra Pietra e Cielo,” a Watermark Arts Continuum inspired dance art project in progress in southern Italia, with Naomi Walker, Claudia T. Catani, Elaine Colandrea, & Prue Jeffries, photos.
Curled in fabric sacs, our moving bodies released the scent of thyme from the plants below us, which filled my scent receptors for days. Our spiraling movements mirrored the many white vineyard snails that were climbing up the tall grasses we were embedded with. Emerging slowly, we felt the gentle breeze on our skin, the warmth of the sun filled our pores. Blue sky drew us to our feet where we reveled in exploring air & space; then the stone and soil below us called us to return to the earth. A life cycle…with Naomi Walker, Claudia T. Catani (dancers) and Prue Jeffries (photos/filming.) In the Parco Murgia Timone, Matera, Italia, a land I love, a land I learn from.
