David Konyk: Performer
_ My life is full of stages. Stages I have performed on; stages of my life. I am always moving. I like it that way. I find that things are better when they are in motion. This notion started as a child, not able to sit still, hyperactive, playing out adventures dreamt up in my head. It makes sense that I would fall into a profession that centers on moving. I discovered early on the advantages of using the whole body to support movement. Climbing trees and skateboarding first taught me that. Torso, shins and head work as well as any pair of hands or feet. In my life and in my art making, reinvention is movement too. Holding on to the things I want to keep, tossing those I don't. Value and revalue. Moving through stages, on and off the stage. Never stop moving.
