Thrilled and proud to hear of the success of my homegirl @melahhnee's new creation on the splendid creatures of @sydneydanceco this past week 🙌❤️ here's a #fbf to last year's Re-make at @chunkymove in which I teach Mel how to kill herself Romeo and Juliet-style, become a schizophrenic ballet sea creature, bust out a ménage and throw glitter, all in one minute! Oh how challenging we made it for the dramaturgist ... 😂 Mel kindly credited this work as a choreographic collaboration between us, but she is the masterminding and magical sorceress ✨. Without doubt the funnest creation process I've ever had; I mean, Mel made my dreams of playing guitar and wearing a giant black romantic tutu come true in the one show ... 🙌❤️✨ .
So I show this glitter throwing section in celebration of Australia, where the marriage equality legislation has now been passed in parliament! 🌈🎉 Finally ... and only billions of $$$ tax payers' money later 🙄 but YAY and YASSS to this glorious news and here's to much glitter-throwing this weekend to celebrate! 🎉❤️💙💜💚💛 .

Vulnerability is our truest, most authentic state. Allowing ourselves to be vulnerable takes bravery. It can take an inner fight. It's a daring to bare; an opening to the light and to the dark, for joy and for hurt. It's living, wholly and truthfully. 🥀

Dancers' day off this Monday, but because I'm rehabilitating my back, I can't afford too much of a break as I need to maintain momentum (plus the weather is cold, and spines don't like sitting still and getting cold). So my day off so far has been: early morning mobilization treatment, two hours of intensive strength training, and just now some gentle Pilates and yoga at home. Now I'm rolling out the tight spots ... THEN I can just sit back and chill 😜😌PS the back is healing up super nicely, so I'm looking forward to our shows in Venice next week 🤘

Been thinking a lot lately about cultural identity. About place. About belonging. With all the @europalia events going on right now in and around Belgium, I've found my sense of identity, place and belonging flipped and spinning in circles around me, as I experience within weeks almost as much Indonesian art as I have in my lifetime, and make long-awaited real life connections with Indonesian artists (most who know my family and worked with my uncle) - all here in Belgium, a place that has become a new home across the other side of the world from my two first homes in Australia and Indonesia. The scale of the planet shifts in my mind's eye: between overwhelmingly-impossibly vast and uncannily-magically interconnected. My own cultural connection to Indonesia is strong and innate, but when I am there, sometimes I feel quite foreign; at once floating above, curious and contemplating, and immersed to swamping point, in an overload of stimulation for all the senses. I asked photographer @prapt to collaborate with me on an ongoing photo project exploring this theme, alongside the solo work Megatruh created with @melahhnee - which was inspired by the writings of my uncle #WSRendra in Mempertimbangkan Tradisi (Considering Tradition). We are all on our own journeys to find ourselves, in an eternal pursuit of our purpose, here in this life. .

Social media has a tendency to depict the best of our lives - we choose to share the content that makes us appear best, our achievements, our highs ... and, naturally. Similarly as consumers of it, we can curate our feeds as we like; which can be a dangerous pre-cursor for a tunnel-vision view of the world. A few years ago, I wrote a series of blog posts for Dance Tabs as I navigated the rocky sea of my first real injury, and the great response was an awakening. I merely wanted to give a truthful and bare insight into that side of the profession, and to show that we lofty superhuman-seeming beings are humans who experience pain too - just in a somewhat higher threshold than most! I resolved at that time to depict a more balanced insight into this profession, as we continue to fight associated stigmas and misconceptions.
As I delve into a variety of different movement vocabularies over here @balletflanders I have found a few instances where my body has asked me to allow it to more gently feel its way in new pathways - a few gears back from the excitement and hunger of my heart. This past couple of weeks has been frustrating as my back has been unsettled - which, as the central axis of movement affects every minute action of the day. But I have to listen to my body and remind myself that to work smart, not just hard, yields best in the long term. I've been unable to do a full ballet class but have been concentrating on other rehabilitation exercises and Pilates. Today I attempted my first super-gentle and meditative barre in a few days (this video is sped up 😜). In this video I can see the manifestation of protective mechanisms in the way I hold myself. Usually my port de bras moves with more fluidity, but the pain in my back has compromised both the movement capacity and the connected energy from spine to fingertips and beyond. It's not me at my best, but me as I'm learning, unlearning and recalibrating - the ongoing and ever-changing process. Raw and keeping it real 🤘😉 .

It was a pleasure to finally create with @nisian - really admire the way he distills the dancer's form and persona in his photography. Thanks Nisian, and also to @elmalingerie for sending me this beautiful handmade lingerie set ✨🖤 .

Missing my guru/coach/top human Darren Spowart @consciouscontrol BIG TIME right now 😭 for holistic guidance, eagle eyes and what I always call "tough love" 😜; persisting in urging me beyond my preconceived limits. I think one of the most dangerous things anyone can say in any walk of life is: "but this is how I've always done it". We are always morphing, and should therefore always be open to learning, and discovering yet more optimal ways to be, to work and to live. I mean, I'm still fine-tuning my plié, and did my first one of those 29 years ago (actually, in this very studio in this picture) ... every day is a new adventure, if you can embrace it. I've found, being away from home, when I feel lost because certain guiding people aren't physically present, I have to take time to meditate on drawing strength internally from what I've learned from them in the past, my own processing of that information along with my own findings, and, perhaps most importantly, opening myself up to the wonder of the new. Always in the spirit of learning. ✨

PS slightly freaky feeling to work next to posters of oneself 👀

The glorious blaze of autumn belies the deep collective sigh of baring boughs, who with each release of breath shed golden floating tears in a lingering, melancholic lullaby. 🍂✨.
