A View From The Inside

This article is written by Kinetic Elements’ member Ashima Suri.

I took a deep breath and worked my way into the studio for the audition.  I remember feeling intensely hot and I could feel my heartbeat faster.  And I hadn’t even started to dance yet!

It was July 2009 – a hot summer day and a moment I was waiting for.  The Kinetic Elements (KE) audition!  I remember seeing Choreographer of Kinetic Elements, Kendra Hughes, in pictures and videos on Facebook and thinking, I want to learn from her one day.  The week of the KE audition I took classes every day – doing whatever I could to mentally and physically prepare myself for the big day!

I’m not sure how I did on the day of the audition but I do remember leaving feeling great.  I was part of Kinetic Elements group! And little did I know at that time – that this was just the beginning of an amazing journey!

Fast forward to almost a year later and the journey has indeed been a surreal one.  I’ll be the first to admit that the journey wasn’t always a smooth one.  There were definitely some bumps along the way, but it is overcoming those bumps and moving forward that makes a person grow, develop and become stronger.

And now the big day is approaching! Kinetic Elements is performing at the 2010 Toronto Fringe Festival! About 6 months ago, as I stood outside waiting for a streetcar, I received a call from Kendra with the news that we will be in the Fringe! The excitement was contagious and for the rest of the evening I couldn’t stop smiling.

And today, I’m along side some of the most fantastic dancers and in awe of their strength as performers.  I’m learning from an amazing choreographer whom I have learned so much from this past year.  It has all been one big blessing and I’m eternally grateful.

And as I think back to where we started, I slowly begin to unravel the reality of where we are heading and I can’t help but to keep on smiling.  Smiling all the way to the Bathurst Theatre for the 2010 Fringe Festival with the Kinetic Elements crew.  July 2nd will be a great day! J

Eternal Eclipse

ETERNAL ECLIPSE explores the stories of the gods and goddesses which inspired the names of the planets orbiting our solar system. Tales of forbidden love, scandal and irresistible power are expressed through the visual narrative of contemporary dance. The dancers create a universe full of exciting movement while recreating kingdoms of legend. Experience space with Kinetic Elements this summer!
