Given that any artwork is in fact research-based the one thing that is often invisible to my performance collaborators in choreographic works is personal inspiration. Where does inspiration come from and how does it invade the work?

Inspiration is personal. It is a unique way of moving with, for and through the artwork.

Inspiration is the cherry on top of the cake or on the side or inside it.

Inspiration comes from a vague place. Inspiration does not come from a specific place. It comes from a place of uncertainty and from an uncertain place.

Inspiration is instant. It happens in the moment. It does not come from memory or from the future but rather from the exact moment it happens.

Inspiration cannot be shared logically but it calls for an absolute necessity of realization.

Inspiration happens you don’t do it.
