I spent shy of two hours in the studio as a fly on the wall while Meredith Webster and Ariel Freedman rehearsed their latest piece, Empress Archer. Before I got there, I woke up in a bad mood. Felt irritated and heavy. I slept on Bart on the way to the shoot. I snarled at the smell of piss as I got off Bart. But afterwards, I left feeling uplifted, lighter, and a lot more connected to the human spirit. Watching people dance just does something different to me. Peek below at my images from the calming and inspiring afternoon we had.
