Title An exploration of vulnerability through creative process and performance
Date 2012-08
Description This thesis explores the relationship between vulnerable experiences and dance. As artists, why is it important for us to value our vulnerabilities? Through examining or facing our weakness, our true strengths are revealed. In my 3- year MFA studies, I have found that allowing myself to be vulnerable is important in my learning process, my creative process, and my performance. By embracing my own vulnerabilities, I have gained a greater understanding of who I am as an artist and as a person. Finally, through my exploration of my thesis process, I believe that vulnerability is one of the universal languages in art and in dance.
