Dancing for Maya, 2005


Markings on a sandy beach. Digging trails in the shape of waves. A snaky shape. A serpent's path drawn with bare hands, between the legs of the two crawling performers, arriving from opposite directions. My dance partner - dark skinned, dark eyed. I, bright skinned and eyed. Sand gets under our nails. Meaning is doubled as each wave we draw is now a half of the symbol 'infinity'. A chain of D.N.A. - and also a row of eyes being washed away by the waves of the Mediterranean, as we leave the field of vision.
