Samadhi Hawaii has invited me to tag along with them to Indonesia! We have been asked to perform 3 aerial dances as part of this huge convention named V-INDONESIA in Bogor, near Jakarta. V-INDONESIA is one of the largest conventions out of Asia and the Middle-East. It is an annual event that travels to different host cities and where businesses can connect, learn from each other, and promote each other's work. It is a large-scale networking system for both established and up-and-coming businesses out of Asia and the Middle-East.
We plan on entertaining these people with a group aerial tissue number, a lyra duet with Andrea and I, and myself in a solo strap number- that has not been choreographed or costumed yet…oops!
We are with V-Indonesia from Sept 1-10, 2012. Afterwards I will be free to explore Bali and Ubud for two weeks. Then I spend a week in the Philippines with my family there. I have not been to the Philippines in 13 years. I was there last as a dancer for Pearl Ubungen Dancers and Musicians when Pearl brought me there from San Francisco for the McKnight Fellowship she was awarded. We worked with national Filipino composer Joey Ayala – a truly remarkable experience.
Here's to more fantastic experiences to come! Mahalo at maraming salamat po!
