07/19/09: Sarah in The Labyrinth
|Day one in L.A. The Jim Henson Company. It is surreal to be mentoring within the company that inspired so much of my childhood imagination: the Muppets, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock and yes, Labyrinth. And whose legacy informs my creativity, humor and inspiration to this very day. Is this all in Sarah's dream? Am I in fact living the labyrinth?|
I'm lost in the goblin city, surrounded by a maze of concrete- Endless walls of businesses that deceive. There are people who, like the Fieries, will offer you a good time but lead you astray. There are degenerates and kings that hide behind false ego. Things are not as they seem. And there is me, unsure of my quest and direction but learning my strength. And just like Sarah, I am trying to find true friends.

My contemporary ballet, Faith began as an ode to the grandiose music of The Cure and an encounter with a lightning storm. In the end it came to represent the fear of starting a new creative project, the support I got along the way and how with support an artist can really take off. Its title comes from the Margaret Shepherd quote, "Sometimes your only available transportation is a leap of faith." Its title is also a tribute to the Cure album of the same name.
