“The ‘night sea journey’ is the journey into the parts of ourselves that are split off, disavowed, unknown, unwanted, cast out, and exiled to the various subterranean worlds of consciousness…. The goal of this journey is to reunite us with ourselves. Such a homecoming can be surprisingly painful, even brutal. In order to undertake it, we must first agree to exile nothing.”Stephen Cope, as printed in The Body Keeps the Score
“Exile Nothing” is the latest work by Small Creatures Dance Project. It was inspired by the last year of my life in relationship to the quote above. It is a trio set to live music, and the costumes feature the brilliant work of Barbara Januszkiewicz, who we collaborated with in June 2019.
