Deborah Jinza Thayer’s dance begins from her understanding of anatomy, her curiosity about movement and the idea of transformation. She doesn’t start with formal movements, but rather lets the energy from within create the form. Write about what her dance says about water. How do her music, dress, movements and gestures evoke the properties of water?

Deborah Jinza Thayer says she sees her work as a seed for dialog or action, not as a piece with a clearly defined meaning. Create a poem, a dance, a painting, an outfit, a piece of music or any other work which reflects your ideas about water. Did her work inspire you?
