  1. Good day Andrea, such a pleasure meeting you in person last Saturday at Bates College. I want to share the following article with you as it is exactly what we were discussing during lunch. state of the arts in Canada and some comparison to the US:

    I am also enjoying your short films. What amazing settings! this will not be difficult for me to do as I know exactly where the suggestion to move is coming from! It is more a question of fitting it in my schedule. Let’s see what I can come up with. Be well and good dance to you.
    kind regards,


    • Love the article. THANK you for sending. And we now have translations in Spanish and Russian and are looking forward to adding French. Body and Earth are global visions, and I so appreciate your interest in helping to “translate” this project! Let this inspire anyone else with a passion for language and embodiment to send translations of the films so we can post! All the best, Andrea
