Gauging


A few years ago during training with the group Animatronik we had the fundamental idea of developing a tool, which facilitates the cultivation of the fix-point-principle in the Popping dance style and takes its movement vocabulary from Toyman and Tutting. Over time this experiment turned into a game with rather simple rules. Though movement material needs to be specifically generated and cultivated for it.


The body is divided in various sections, which end where a 90 degrees bend is possible. The movement principle is similar to taking measures with a yardstick: pushing, pulling, folding and swinging. This is why we called it Gauging.


Many a time we planned on finding possibilities for the development of a completely new dance form especially during contact improvisation. Because the frame of the game is not that limiting and rules can be broken without destroying it, I would like to know if a group of dancers could find enough interesting Gauging material, through depth acquired in daily practice, in order to use this topic in its vastness as a conceptual dance for a production. Find an example of Gauging at 3:11 in this video.
