what consumes us?

Taryn Javier - Project Creation & Development | Production | Artistic Direction & Choreography

well, we are five days away from the first rehearsal. so far i have managed to gather the following about consumption….

we are consumed by love. we are consumed by work. we are consumed by our efforts to succeed and do well.

now i will ask this…..think back to a time when you were consumed by one of the above things…(i will ask for the memory that is strongest within you) you can feel free to share this memory….or you can just state what it is in ONE WORD that consumed you….

ask yourself these questions from that point….

what do you feel inside your body? what is/was your posture like? are you able to feel those same sensations if you place your body in that posture again…..


The artists of inlayers are asking for your support by donating to our online fundraiser. Though the project is underway with the support from Alberta Foundation for the Arts, this funding only covers 25% of the budget. The rest is up to our own efforts. Your donations will go to help pay the 8 involved artists for their full time contributions, hard work, and dedication during the 6 weeks of this project as well as additional creation and production costs.
