So let’s talk about Ratatat.
My introduction to this song was sweaty, intimate & utterly breathtaking (literally and figuratively).
So for those drama department kids out there, you may or may not know what I’m talking about. Because movement (as a general term for Lecoq and Viewpoints business stuff like this http://movementtheaterstudio.com/) is still a bit on the fringes, which is unfortunate because it is responsible HANDSDOWNHANDSONHANDSINBODYINetc (you get where I’m going with this, yes?) some of the the happiest hours of my life.
Luckily, I went to school where people were interested in this and for a semester every Thursday (approximately) we’d all get together in one of the rehearsal rooms and movetogether. And the first time, we closed the session with a free-form kind of thing (I have never led these I don’t know the terms I just know endorphinssweathurtmusclesforgettingamorphousbodybeingflyingliftingtwistingloveeuphoriaconnectedness) and this song closed us out.
So just think about it. Listen to it. Move with it. Do yo thang.
Yes I said it.
I’m in love with this song, two years later. In love.
And it’s a good song just on it’s own so enjoy.
