dance #182, heliotropePrelude to the Solstice VII: Heliotrope

“Metaphor means heliotrope, but a movement turned toward the sun and the turning movement of the sun…Each time there is a metaphor, there is doubtless a sun somewhere; but each time that there is sun, metaphor has begun.” (Jacques Derrida, White Mythology, p. 251)

10:20 p.m. A 10 minute dance in the study. This sun centred system is revolving. Halfway. Eliptical curves. Dizzying orbitals. Tilting axes within orbits spinning into speeds and slownesses, proximities and distances. Warming and cooling and warming again. The dance slices into these curves and generates its own momentum. Spinning and spun. I’m dizzy as a body revolving. Feeling the heat and light. Spun out.

Alice and I infolded earlier. The day was gushing with deep soaking rain. The people in Iran are at the cusp of revolution as the earth revolves halfway towards the summer solstice.
