Ineffable Intangible Sensational
What does movement do?
In this workshop I share my bifurcated practices. One is a methodical research of the senses – primary, esoteric and "invented" – that addresses the perceptual mechanisms we engage in performance. The other is a more irreverent and immediate practice that resists a traditional thought-to-action matrix.
Throughout the week we will switch between introspective and exhibitionist modes, hammering away at our restrictive physical and performance patterns to find expressive possibilities that are mysterious and poetic yet direct and unaffected. Working from the proposition that dance is a mode of perceptual inquiry, and working against the idea of dance as a non-verbal "language" I am interested in movement explorations that prioritise sensation, non-rational action, and that trigger automatic, unprepared physical response. What does movement "do" and how does it operate as a framework for complicated, nuanced, embodied meaning?
