Not John With the Boat
Dancing has long been an activity for sublimated courtship and flirtation. Ballroom classes can be a space for romantic couples and non-romantic couples to socialise in synchronicity. The release of endorphins is much larger during dance than in other types of exercise, dancing can allow you to transcend the limits of everyday stresses. This project explores the nuances of human interaction over time and the relationship between a close relative and not John with the boat. In an interview as part of the project, she describes her ideal of a couple: “It’s feeling warm and feeling safe. There is a safety element about it. Just being able to talk and to share things. It’s less physical and more about companionship”.
