Judith Williams

My work as an artist and celebrant, my life as a human woman have led me to find creative means through which to delight in and move with the big stuff, the precious stuff. In an endeavor to make sense of the losses and longings within beautiful, structured, sacred containers in various art forms; song, music, dance, theatre, film, workshops, ceremony, events, poems - like this one by Rumi -

Dance, when you're broken open.
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off.

Dance in the middle of fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance, when you're perfectly free.

excerpt: translations by Coleman Barks with John Moyne
