I noticed her when I watched the Tricentenary Gala dancing the Phryne part in La Nuit de Walpurgis. Her dancing was so authorative, very composed and imo out-shined the others dancers that at that time I mistakenly assumed that she’s already pro at POB and I wondered why did she dance in this gala.

"There’s so much attention to detail and so it looks effortless, but really there’s a lot of work going in to making everyone look the same… What makes corps work so gratifying is like, the team work of effortless beauty."

“I was by myself for a pretty long time. I needed to do that. I think everyone that I know has wanted to do that or needed to do that at some point. I think when you spend enough time when it’s quiet around you and you don’t open your mouth for three or four days, there’s parts of your brain that can kind of rest. I think when we’re out in the world and we have to talk to people, we edit ourselves. You know, we have to like, act a little bit. As honest as we may be as humans, when we’re out here, we’re all kind of wearing mirrors on our faces. You know, constantly reacting to how to react to the people around you. And I think when you’re alone for a long enough time, you can feel a lot more peace.”

-Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, in an interview speaking about living in his father’s cabin for three months when writing ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’

The saddest word
in the whole wide world
is the word almost.


He was almost in love.
She was almost good for him.
He almost stopped her.
She almost waited.
He almost lived.
They almost made it.
