You Live In My Spine
Los Angeles based choreographer Leah Zeiger is presenting a new evening length work titled You Live In My Spine (YLIMS) on January 20th, 21st, and 22nd, 2023, at G-Son Studios. Featuring six dancers, a new original score composed by Max Berlin, live musicians, and spine-inspired art installations on view, YLIMS is an integrated experience for performers and audience members alike.

YLIMS explores not only what is held in the most crucial bone structure in our bodies, but also how we approach dealing with what is there, and whether or not our approach hinders or helps our efforts and connections to each other. Drawing from the research of esteemed scholars Dr. Bessel van der Kolk (The Body Keeps The Score), Dr. Alia Crum (Stanford Mind & Body Lab), and James Clear (Atomic Habits), YLIMS asks the performers and audience alike to consider their bodys memory, daily habits, and mindsets, both physically and emotionally. At all times, the dancers bodies are being pulled in at least two directions, sometimes more, mirroring the wildly invigorating yet mundane human task of constantly holding conflicting truths in our minds and bodies in order to make sense of the world.

YLIMS asserts that the one thing all humans have in common is that we all have a body, which we are merely borrowing from the Earth, and the highest hope we can hold for ourselves and each other is that we can both learn from and give wisdom to our bodies, leaving them better off than how we found them.

YLIMS is the first of Zeigers choreography to be born out of her somatic technique, the Body Memory Method. This method was crafted from Zeigers approach to understanding her own bodys lived experience as a survivor of an abusive relationship and sexual violence. The Body Memory Method offers dancers, survivors, and anyone with a body a movement-based approach to experiencing empathy, curiosity, and forgiveness in the body.
