Sophie Gargan | NZ
For 24-year-old Sophie Gargan, that space for enjoyment is dance.
When dancing, Gargan, of New Plymouth, feels like her most authentic self; she feels every emotion, especially happiness. In the past she has run a space for people to dance for the love of it – with the lights off and the music up. It wasn’t a lesson, although Gargan is a trained contemporary dancer. Instead it was a safe space to let loose and dance without judgement.

A shedding of skins, of layers being peeled back and back further more, peel, peeling. You don’t understand you say? That’s ok I reply, because soon, not understanding will become understanding. Just as not knowing, will become knowing. We begin to access the body out of this unnatural state of over saturation.
