Here is some more feedback for the Open Rehearsal on Saturday afternoon:

Markus’s  Open Rehearsal

What I saw in the dancers

The dancers seemed at ease in taking direction from Markus. There was no hesitation to move as he instructed.

Here is a quote from last night's Open Rehearsal:

I really enjoyed attending the rehearsal.  It was intriguing to participate as a viewer.  I feel I am learning so much.  I am letting go of ideas I have have had in the past about theatre -and life- and shaping new ones! Mostly about being present, calm, and playful.
I like your words "don't move to the music, but let the music move you." Words to live by!  Also I found the phrase, "if it is uninteresting, do less" very…

Hi Markus, I don't know if you were planning on writing with us today, but I am sick and staying home so we won't be getting together.  Maybe we can do Cha Island Tea House again sometime soon!

Hi Markus, thanks so much for facilitating yesterday. What a great workshop - today a couple of times I caught myself moving quickly and directly - my least favourite - must slow down.
