Living Landscapes is about building relationships, relationships of our body with objects, text/word, textures, sound, land, and the varying visual registers that give space to forms of animacy. Participants are invited to connect and listen to their sensing body and all elements brought into an active and developing dramaturgy. Activating, responding, discovering, and listening to the multitude of voices is at the heart of this exploration.
This workshop will probe experiential realities, exploring memories/future memories, notions of lineage, non-human entities, dreams, the varying states of the body, sensing textures and sonic development in the context of performance and experimentation. Centring our various agencies with a sensitive regard for our varying capacities will be key. How do we each meet fulfilment, failure, potentiality, and finally resonance?
Working with temporality, we will give time to deceleration to allow new and old embodied knowledge and awareness to unfold, exploring a personal rigorous approach to minimalism. We will take our time “being with” natural and urban landscape(s), exploring their intrinsic intimacies.
Underlying the workshop is a desire for experiential storytelling and sharing between us will strive to be open-ended, offering an invitation for reciprocity.
I dream in song/I think of songs. And the place where it revolutionizes futures. How it echoes and transforms. Gorgeous tongue. Markings of intentions, Ignite us to the bone. I see heartbeats. Taste heartbeats. From the vast belly of the mother. Imploded on us, through us. Beyond to our cosmic lands.Lara Kramer
