contacting... or connecting...
today my 'dance ladies' as i call them- more properly, tribe 'Womanjah'- showed me what they'd done on our new dance last week when i was away. CONTACT! inspired by movements i'd done with Heather the week before. Beautiful movement that flowed, healed, was love... this might sound silly, but this is what contact improv. IS to me... and my group has come up with something that is original for the Melbourne bellydance community... i think it will blow them away...

this, to me, felt like my contribution to the group. contact has come to me through my dance community. it might sound contrived, but the dance community has been community to me- Meredith's five rhythms class got me through teaching term two last year, and i have felt valued and supported by the people i have connected with through that class. People i haven't even spoken with but have shared energy with, some kind of communication that comes from no words, maybe a look in the eyes but also just through moving our bodies through space...

Arms up, flow up; back twists; legs stretch, contract, move forward, towards, away from, joining, separating, merging, coming back to just me...

anyway... it really makes me glad that my other community, the bellydance people, are going to see this (if a very unimprovised form of contact!), and maybe some of them will see the beauty in it that i see too... it makes my heart warm...

Mental!
from Redrum Sam...

should be a good night... if you're into that kind of thing (dirty pirate ballads, mental shit and a rollicking gyspy jam...


Sorry about the last minute notice for this!!
Thursday night 12 April at Open Studio - 204 High Street Northcote (opposite Town Hall / Westbourne Grove)
Performance by Nicholas Tweedy - Mentalist
This guy is amazing - I met him whilst working at the Adelaide Fringe Festival recently. He is over from USA and performs feats of mentalism - levitating objects, mind reading, spoon bending etc. I have seen him working close up and what he can do is amazing - I highly recommend seeing this show. We were so impressed with him in Adelaide that the company I was working with hosted a last minute extra show which was sold out, and we've been able to organise a melbourne show whilst he's staying over here.
If you're skeptical, all the better - I was thoroughly amazed. See also http://www.nicholastweedy.com/

The details:
8:30pm Cat Scurvy, Redrum Sam (that's me folks) and Sean the Saw play a small set of Pirate Songs
9:00pm Nicholas Tweedy
Later on... Gypsy music / Violin etc (not sure of details but will be fine stuff)

Entry - $10. Don't know how busy it will be so if you're coming get there early - small venue!

gunny girls and gipsland boys...
Had Drunken Fun at Sydney Rd, after the Street Party. Got there late (had to work, then ride from work), to see last half dozen songs of Gypsies. Of course they rocked, and apparently they'd not played there before, which i was surprised to hear. Ash looked like a rock star in dark glasses. then to the Cornish to sit out the back and catch up with kids i hadn't seen in about a year (more?), and hope no one noticed me looking at the bloke with a too-thin shirt rolled up to his elbows and his farmers forearms...
Later at Retreat where i danced, we laughed ourselves silly and (unexpected) a lovely boy made sparkley eyes at me. i wasn't sure i wasn't imagining it.
i fell asleep in the pub, and walked home...

i am staying out at Pascoe Vale, looking after a mates cat for a couple weeks while she's snowboarding with her girlfriend in Japan... when i wake up, the first thing i hear is the rumble of the planes taking off at the airport- they sound like growling dragons or dinosaurs or monsters; i like it...

finally conquered my fear and asked boy out for drink/ catch up... as anticipated, he's declined. although i suspected he would, i still feel sad. i've told myself there are two billion plus other men in the world... that its his loss, that i need now to let it go, move on, get over it...

but i'm still sad...

i had two gigs lined up for saturday night, but have been told i'm no longer needed... bummer, i was looking forward to the gigs, and the much needed moula... (course, now am free for velitu b'day shennanigans)

have a shower, have a cry... get over it...?

... eyes like the palest green glass...

chairs outside Palimino (commme, to-morrrrrow, Pallllllla-meeeennnnowwwww)


not green:

...dark, solid brown wardrobe (probably salvos. or the side of the road, more likely).
rich chestnut parquet floor. delicious dark chocolate waves I'm (utterly gone) lost in...

...the blinding heat and the smokey haze enveloping the city...


...fuck i gotta dance...

(love letter)
I love you for your emotion and passion. You have feelings and you feel them, you don't smother and hide them like others can sometimes do. When you feel joy, you radiate golden light and your eyes shine and overflow with light. I want to live with you, enjoy your company and have fun adventures with you. (Summer rains, Commonwealth Games and so sexy girlfriends, barbequed octopus, beach dances and poseing nude, picnics and drunken flirting (dance!) with green-eyed heartbreaker, poi, bushdoof, dates with a beautiful (boy)friend, wild gyspy bands, Cat and the ballroom on high street...)
Early morning walks when the rest of the world is sleeping, cool evenings turn into starry nights, your presence a warm glow beside me. I love the way you dance, move... Toss Turn...
I'd almost say it was flames eating the air... fire consuming... energy.
You are sometimes afraid- its not something you can hide, even if you want to ... at these times i want to hold you, kiss your neck softly and remind you of all the amazing things you've done- of love you've felt and how its gotten you through and you have seen the sun setting on the caldera at Santorini- don't forget that you are amazing and you can do anything...

xx

...
first day back at work today. was cold, but good to be back and love seeing familiar faces of those i haven't seen in a while... moved some pots... got dirty... fantasised about gardens in a new home...

am sick. have had about eight hours sleep in the last two nights; doesn't make for happy me...

im skipping my dance classes tonight. feel like shit. but a friend is back from overseas and i'd like to go to the 'welcome back'... at least, i'd like to see him...

i don't know if i'll crash out or go over...


signing off... its been kind of fun, in spite of myself...

Needs Meme... this is pretty funny...
(good mother, bad mother, and the changing boundaries)Jedda needs her own culture...
I really don't think Jedda needs the top clipped as it is naturally short and sleek...
Jedda needs hand holding all the way along...

I had to include that part in the brackets, cos i think its relevent...

JamaicaMeCrazy!
Last night did a 'Soukous' class... it was the funniest, sexiest dance class i've ever been in!
The girl up the front has a face like her mother- a rose in full bloom. But she has the energy and a feeling about her that is young and coltish and maybe barely contained. No, not 'barely contained' because again, like her mother, she is stillness... She moves like a dancer from a saturday morning music video (not that i watch those anymore, but...), except way better and a thousand times more real. Middle Eastern Dance, which some people think is 'sexy', is really more 'sensual' (to my way of thinking, anyhoo)... of course, they are all just words... But there are no big thrusting movements- you dance with your pelvis underneath you, your spine in a natural curve. Up the front, Claudia says that all the movements we're learning now should be danced with our arse 'out'... its all about the HIPS! Theres a little jump, and your hips scoop up and propel your spine, your chest (your tits) up. And again, and again, and again, fast, faster, and I'm in fits of giggles up the back to see us all, forty women with their backs to me, thrusting our hips as we chase that gorgeous creature up the room. Its fucking funny... So its all sharp, punchy, demanding hips, but at the same time, its all supposed to be soft as water... The move where we're bent forward from the hips with our hands on the floor in front of us, arse to the sky, and you're bouncing your butt up, up, up to the beat, isn't suggestive, its a positive invitation! By the end of the class i'm sweaty, exhausted, and have maybe never felt so uncordinated. the mirrors up the front are dripping with our breath- we've long since been blind to our reflection... i think i'm out of my league... but god it was fun...

dance, dancer, dancing...
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in
Any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

--Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

pretty in pink...
apricot satin and lace and bare legs. like a brunette Uma Thurman and I'm having trouble keeping my eyes off you... your head is up and your eyes are down and you're swishing that skirt around bare knees, spinning and turning... sexy skin.
that hideous eighties frock NEVER had it so good...

:)

boy in batman pyjama pants and addidas tshirt bends and sweeps his arms to the meet the floor, god it sounds ridiculous but planes are coliding and he is motion, swirling, sweating, gorgeous, his hand comes to his chest and rests there and he is sweaty and delicious...

(ok, yum...)

girl in french maid outfit with Little Bo Peep cap and blonde braids. boy in ballroom sequins and fleece rasta cap...

later, batman pjs and moroccan burnoose are caught in a moment, rolling, bending, stretching and pushing. its so beautiful it hurts. i feel a little ache, but its ok.

thats the shit...
