The break dancing we did in the True Color DANCE workshop was a genre I had never danced before. Its choreography with our hands and feet on the ground was completely new to me. Plus, the solo performance at the end of the program, where everyone formed a circle with one person in the middle, was also a first for me. I was a bit nervous but I did my best to express what we had learned in the workshop that day.

The members of ILL-Abilities are of course great at teaching and I also appreciated their thoughtfulness towards the participants. I want to challenge myself more in the future, and I’ll be performing in a new circus performance that SLOW LABEL is producing during 2019 and 2020, as well as in the True Color Festival in May 2020. I want to show that I can’t hear, but I can feel the rhythm and that I enjoy performing even though I am deaf.
