Ordinary Extraordinary with Lillian Ransijn

The Portable Studio created a crowdsourced virtual dance, thanks to teaching artist Lillian Ransijn.

Inspired by David Whye’s poem “Everything is Waiting for You,” we asked you to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, to look around your house and find an everyday object, and to film yourself using that object in the way it was intended followed by exploring that same object in a new way – using the object in a way it wasn’t intended or even dancing with the object.
