What is your relation to S E N S A T I O N & P E R C E P T I O N ?
I started with these questions. blank pages to answer, things to discover over the days, to ponder over these grandiose ideas.
Why do we M O V E?
How do we S H A R E this experience with others, our collective selves and the spectator?
What is Y O U R D I S C I P L I N E?
Day One Aims: Gathering information and resources. Define direction of residency. Follow personal creativy and interest. A Day for Duration:
- 100 breaths
- 20 sun salutations
- 7 minutes of heaven
- 1:20 hour moving, in relation to space and the music
- 15 minute transformation of one gesture
Then I asked myself: What is the logical next step? vs. What is the intuitive next step?
You know what step I took? Nothing. There was an overwhelming intimidation from the size of the room, frozen movement, unclarity in why I should move and for what purpose.
I found the window and I found my voice. This gave me structure. Gave me a direct audience (myself in relation to what was outside the window).
— I looked for something to relate to: music, another performer, time, space (was too big!) viewer
— I found the window (to the outside world) and my own voice. I was relation to my thoughts and some perceptions that came through the window
— My voice revealed a lot. I choose how to relation to myself and my artist self by verbally communication.
— To a degree, this might be possible in silence, yet by speaking out loud, I left my own head.
— Durational Endurance is good. It does allow layers to unfold
— I am discovering myself. It is ok and g r e a t that I take this time.
— I am not yet ready to bring others into the practice. Time to meet myself…
