1 Legged Popping Barrel Roll!
This machine came about as a result of an injury. Back in February, Danya broke her toe quite badly. No, not through anything acrobatic… stubbed it on a chair! Ha. It took months to heal, and is still swollen. It was tricky to continue training and teaching with a broken toe, and made participating at Pitch Catch extra challenging. When possible she tried to be curios instead of frustrated… didn’t always get it right, but this video and the machine we worked on one was one example of “well I can’t use my right foot…so what could we do with only one leg?” It’s really difficult to be both frustrated and curious at the same time. It’s almost like they are two separate sides of the same coin.
I often encourage students to choose curiosity when they feel the beginning of frustration.
While I don’t think it’s useful to expect this reframe all of the time, and wouldn’t want to use it as a way of tone policing people’s experience. Let’s face it if you are being marginalised or discriminated against, frustration and anger are appropriate responses when boundaries are crossed. (Because expecting people to never get angry in such instances just ends up minimising, derailing, and ultimately perpetuating systemic problematic power dynamics). However, often in the partner acrobatics sense learning to turn frustration into curiosity can be useful. Being curious is so much more of a healthy, positive, empowering state to be in, it’s a state that we can connect easier, be less defensive, listen better, and be more innovative.
Next time you experience a set back, ask yourself if it might serve you better to become curious. And if the answer is yes, than move forward from a place of curiosity.
Nada como un minuto a solas para darte cuenta, de que a veces, solo hay que disfrutar el momento, y reír... reír mucho hasta que duela el estómago y las penas del alma se tiñan de colores llamados felicidad.
Sometimes, you just have to enjoy the moment, and laugh ... laugh a lot until your stomach hurts and the pains of the soul are dyed with colors called happiness.

It is no easy thing to embody both beauty and strength. Too often we we let fell nature overcome us and fly towards barbarism. Or, we focus too much on beauty and allow vanity to rot us from the inside, despite a fair visage. To be both and stay humble is a task that only a very few can accomplish.
