Yesterday I was having some tea with my friends from Barcelona here in Thamel, Kathmandu, Nepal. We were enjoying crackers and smoking cigarettes on the balcony of one of their apartments. Looking out from there we noticed a group of kids all playing together. They noticed us as well and soon enough we were having flowers and stems being thrown at us from below. This is one of the shots I took.

I met a little homeless boy a few days ago in the streets of Kathmandu, Nepal. Despite his situation which was apparent, his mother only sitting within shouting range, he seemed genuinely happy. I walked past a day later and to my surprise there was a complete 180. He was sick and crying and there wasn’t anything I could do. Seeing the ups and downs of this little boy have really had an effect on me. I hope my photos can accurately portray his situation.

When I’m trying to explain to people what I think is grand and noble about movement, I say that the reason it is our most valuable connector as human beings is because that person onstage, who has a body similar to ours, is using that body in proxy for us. That kind of transference and connection is a very poetic way of saying something that I think the doctor’s given his life to understanding: how an idea about movement can actually be felt. This fact is the way that I’ve been able to deal with issues of identity. And the making of art, the sharing of it, is in some ways — healing sounds way too sentimental — but it bridges the gap between individuals. When I read some of Dr. Sacks’s meditations on how the brain works, in a way he demystifies these things that I have a feeling about. But in another way he encourages me to look with more courage at the physical world.

Identity. Just another one of the paths we can take when we finally orchestrate an interview with the great choreographer for On Being. Oh, and we will do so one day. *smile*
