Matt says: “I don’t start with an idea,
I start with a movement.”
It is easy for Matt to fool around and then decide what he likes and what he doesn’t.
But what about us
who do not move but shift from one place to another.
and have no space to move about.
I spent six days walking in the Lake District before I felt I moved.
But that’s rare.
Or maybe that’s about starting with lines, and then ‘it is a whole page of words, not lines’
as Frank O’Hara said, though he was talking about poetry and painting,
and I am not talking poetry or painting, though I would like to.
In fact I don’t really know what it is,
other than it is live and in front of you, as Jonathan Burrows said:
‘it’s just a stupid dance’.
