Quotes for life: But then, as time goes on. Juilliard´s Senior Production 2013.

"You drive by them, these two buildings, and you look, and you realize that we really built that up. That we really built that love into these things, and for a long time afterward looking at them really made me feel sad; to see these empty buildings that I don´t go in to anymore. But then, as time goes on, they start to become kind of joyous in their own way: You can look at them and think 'that love was great and these buildings still stand tall'. But there is also an element of the fact that they´re just buildings - they´re gonna fall down one day, and they´re not that´re not that important because there´s new love in your life and you´ve got to break things down, that get built up."

Justin Vernon

Es ist einer der ganz wichtigen Stufen auf der Treppe nach ganz oben: Für einen Juilliard Tanzschüler ist die Senior Production, 3 Tage Performance, in denen Seniors Werke von anderen Seniors präsentieren, von großer Bedeutung. Begonnen hat das Projekt bereits in den 1980er und ist mittlerweile zu einer wichtigen Tradition geworden innerhalb der Tänzerausbildung. Abgesehen von dem choreographischen Part der Show, bestehen weitere sehr wichtige Teile aus Technik, Kostüm- und Set Design. In diesem Jahr wurden 7 Choreographen ausgesucht, worunter mein absoluter Favorit Julia Headley war, mit ihrem Stück "Glimpse", ein lyrisches Contemporary Stück, das sich mit Realität und Masse, mit Individuum und Gesellschaft beschäftigt. 

"Focus your energy, you´ll know where to put it. Learn form what is all around you. Keep things close but not too close. Breathe deeply before reacting to a challenge. And keep doing what you´re doing - even if you haven´t a clue what it is - as long as it feels right."

Jason Collins, Senior Production Choreograph

"Because one step or one thought alone requires enormous consideration, progress feels slow in the moment and somehow suddenly speedy in retrospect."

Ingrid Kapteyn, Senior Production Tänzer

"Sometimes I think you are in a relationship because you need help, 
but that´s not necessarily why you should be in a relationship. And that´s skinny. 
It doesn´t have weight. Skinny love doesn´t have a chance because it´s not nourished. 
Not at all."

Justin Vernon

"When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, 
you don´t throw away your ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer." 

Corrie Ten Boom

"The adjustment of reality to the masses and of the masses to reality 
is a process of unlimited scope, as much for thinking as for perception." 

Walter Benjamin
