A dancer is an explorer working within the frame of his/her own limits, constantly trying to push further these physical but also mental boundaries, and who is also in relationship with the limitations of other dancers and of the surrounding conditions he is working within.
Assuming that fact and using it as a departure point for research can be a very fruitful way to create. In this Field Project we will explore different physical ideas having to deal with limitations, and to explore the endless possibilities within that frame.
We will use different tools as various as anatomy, gravity, rhythm pattern, partner(s), body isolation, images, states...
Combining the mental and the visceral, keeping in mind we are creating a poetical language, we will experience how to be faithful and obsessive to a task and experience how our body and physical intuition reacts and evolves in relationship to it and how limitations can, eventually, lead us to an unexpected feeling of freedom.Damien Jalet
