We all build an identity often based on our culture, religious beliefs, family position, career, physicality and so forth. Ultimately, in our later-life, we all experience an identity crisis when our perception of self changes. Dancers notoriously experience an 'early onset' crisis since their careers often cap at a young 30 years of age. Karen Pearlman was once a sensation in contemporary dance in New York and Australia. Looking back over early 80's archives, Karen's productions evolve from floor-based to wall-based with the introduction of a screen and incorporated projections; "there are arbitrary divisions between theater and dance, we blend the two because life is blended". This is a woman so wonderfully devoted to blending life and dance that she performed on stage at nine months pregnant in a pink silk gown. So why is Karen now a self-proclaimed retired dancer? Is that the price of academia? Or motherhood? How did she survive and embrace the cultivation of a new identity? Karen speaks candidly about an important period in her life where she was "identity-less".
