One of my fav’s! Giorgia Bovo, a brilliant NYC-based dancer/choreographer of Italian origin, recently had an operation on one of her knees, effectively putting her out of active duty for about 6 to 8 weeks. Unable to remain inactive for so long, the young dancer created an amazingly original project called ‘The Recovery Dances‘ where each week she showcases some of her artistic skills that do not depend on her knee:
‘I am a dancer who is recovering from knee surgery (arthroscopy for meniscal tear). The recovery process from the procedure usually takes 6-8 weeks. I am not capable to avoid dancing for all this time, so I decided to make movements in a less traditional way, without risking to slow down healing, and to make a dance journal about my recovery. I called it: The Recovery Dances.
This week the subject has to do with Giorgia from afar, from a vantage point. Appropriately called ‘Bird’s eye view’. By the way, I have a permanent link of Giorgia’s links on my side bar. Pay her a visit!
