Tony Orrico – choreography and visual art

Today’s “Artist a day” washed ashore something very interesting. (Jane and Jane, you two will love this!) Take a beautiful human being and infuse it with motion, meditation and geometry and you get Tony Orrico.

Artist a Day - Tony Orrico

The illness, or what commonly perceived as a health problem, became a catalyst for something unique and profound. That reminds me of John the African Shaman, who said that in Africa they have a name for the illness which is a precursor for a person to come to his shamanic practice. Kind of, you don’t know you are supposed to go THAT way, but the fate pushes you towards your path through cutting off all the other ways, often through the means of some mysterious malaise.
