Poetry and Dance by Sharon Lia Robinson
Excerpt from her documentary film, Edge of the Sea Gallery (1998-2003). length 1:53
I wrote this poem “The Will To Go Forward Is Connected To The Chance To Move” in August, 1978. The poem is inspired by Paul Eluard. At the time, I was beginning to create innovative dance, poetry and theater to reflect compassionate, artistic portrayals of full-figured women. In 2008, two decades after the poem was written, I produced this dance poetry film.
