#106: Lessons from The Last One [Podcast]

Listen to this episode


Put yourself in a situation where it’s so extreme, that you have to figure out how to get through it…

Anthony Nikolchev

I always like to find what is unpredictable in everything that we do.

Gema Galiana

Session Summary:

Feature Presentation: This is the second of the four performances I got to see recently at The Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles.  I felt many emotions and this moving performance brought up questions that I didn’t know how to answer.  I love when art does that.  I feel blessed to have witnessed the artistic experience that Anthony Nikolchev and Gema Galiana took me through in their production of “The Last One.” What an enjoyable conversation I had with them on subjects such as their improvisation process, their thoughts on the commercial and concert dance world, and much more. The lessons I was reminded of from “The Last One” were pay attention to silence and stillness, expect some element of unpredictability, and you can always rebuild if you’ve been broken down.
