Global Underscore Montréal, 2012

Sunny day in the park
Parc Lafontaine, Montréal, Québec, Canada,

Saturday the 23th of June, 9am, Elizabeth and I arrived in the park.

The temperature was perfect. Sunny sky, a soft wind, trees all around our dance spot, even one surrounded by thousands of lite pink flowers…
We were ready for that Global Underscore 🙂 Here some of our harvest:
Benoit M.:
It was a little early to be fully awake… It felt a little bit awkward to be in the open space…
Nezha:
I felt like being in the “real life”! Techno music (around), group that was walking by, talking and shouting… I was feeling the connection with New-York and Brazil, they where probably hearing a lot of noises from there studio…
Elizabeth:
Looking at the list, it gave me the impression of an electronic web, a little bit like if we were connected by tubes that was giving us the opportunity to sneak a peak into each and every group around the word, dancing simultaneously. A growing community!
Daniel:
I’m came back in the city yesterday, and was feeling a bit disconnected… This morning, arriving in the park, observing the beauty of the nature, and my friends smile, I felt connected again 🙂
Pierre-Luc:
I discovered how amazing it is to dance in the nature, being upside down on someone’s back, and observing the trees, the sky, the other dancers… Wow!
Stéphanie:
Today I decide to re appropriate my Kinesphere. I fell asleep twice… my skin in the grass… it was perfect 🙂
Benoît A.:
I never felt as connected to communities around the world! I also can relate to what Pierre-Luc said… Being in suspension, and watching to world in that angle is great 🙂
Elizabeth:
It is so great to be disoriented in the nature!!!
Justin:
There was two very interesting aspects today… reaching for connection and receiving connection. And also, being present for both! That worth waking earlier than the usual Saturday morning 😉
Pierre-Luc:
I also observed how weird we seemed to be for people that were passing by.
Eryn:
I arrived late this morning. When I entered the park, I asked someone if he saw a bunch of dancers around. He said:”Dancers? Nope! But there’s a bunch of oddballs over there”. Well, CI is really different from dancing. But, what is it then?… It was the first time I realized how odd it is…

 Thanks everybody for being part of this! We all made it happened! A particular thanks to Elizabeth (who facilitated with me 🙂 ), Benoît M., Stéphanie, André (who was also our photographer), Manon, Daniel, Francine, Nezha, Justin, Chrystèle, François (who wrote down the harvests), Eryn and Pierre-Luc, a small and great glimpse of our beautiful community 🙂

Benoît A.
