ESSAY// where do we begin?: Thoughts on Absence

This past February I travelled to Texas with my company of dancers to present a few different pieces. We performed 3 film and performance works in Houston and a performance piece in Austin at a gallery. One of our pieces performed in Houston was titled ‘while you were away,’ and explores absence. In ‘while you were away,’ there is film that mirrors the dancers on stage, at times it mirrors them exactly and at times it reflects what they are not and what they could be, what it…

LEIMAYblog // Frantic Beauty by LEIMAY Ensemble Member Mario Galeano

i am standing on black volcanic sand at an isolated beach. ancient siliceous rocks talk to my cracked heels, whispering stories of leviathans. the sun makes my skin sweat, but the warm breeze quickly evaporates it, leaving me covered with only saltiness. my eyes open and in front of me stands a giant wave. i realize that i am dreaming a recurring dream. i try to move, but I'm paralyzed with fear; no escape. the body of water is approaching fast towards me though its roar reaches…

LEIMAYblog // Frantic Beauty by LEIMAY Ensemble Member Omer Ephron

Observing a mystic path,

Hypnotized by the imperfectly perfect and 

Surrounded by an infinite temptation of the forbidden curiosity

leads to the reflections of passion and darkness floating mutually holding their secrets.

Some may suggest those are the secrets of death,

however  life secrets have been kept there as well.

Life as we know it would cease to…

POETRY // ON THE EVERYDAY #1

ORD->LGA

This morning at 8, I wasn't afraid of heights
Took off into the most brilliant colorlessness 
White wing of white plane
Ice frozen to little window
Water rolling over ice
Snow sideways falling behind
Clouds crowd up…

Essay// Interdisciplinary within Meredith Monk's earlier works (part 3/1)

The uniqueness of Interdisciplinary depicted in Meredith Monk’s earlier works could be viewed from three different perspectives. First, from Monk’s growth based on various artistic performances and through the composition of her ensemble group, The House. Second, ‘Mixed Genre of Triangle Theatre’ from various arts and media. Lastly, the reconstruction of performance spaces.





Meredith Monk’s Growth and Composition of The House

Meredith Monk is a Peruvian…

LEIMAYblog // Frantic Beauty/ Beat Your Heart Out by LEIMAY Ensemble Member Derek DiMartini

Frantic Beauty

You feel it in the fingertips of the heart. Blind. Reaching out through the central nervous system. Carving into you like clay, working through you like putty.  For a moment it rests behind the eyes, and you stop, paralyzed. Because before you know what it is, you see it in its entirety. And its too much.  The world is too rigid and time is too steady and it will never fit, there's no place. Its hopeless and you haven't even begun. Oceans of peach pits…

Frantic Beauty first notes

I remember...Sirens. Dogs running into shelter. Fire in wind. My dad driving. Facebook. Waking up in an hospital connected to machines. Lies. Slaughterhouse. Secrets. Mania.



What is beautiful about frantic energy?(or: what is frantic beauty?) Adrenaline. Thrill. Danger. madness. blunt, raw, truth. Stream of unfiltered thought. the soundtrack of a human brain. Wild untouched nature. Deep crack in the earth. Storm in the middle of the ocean. Rapid heartbeat. New born baby… Continue
