Instant Composition / (un) Threading Dance Technique / Embodiment

Aesthetics :: Somatics :: Embodied Philosophy

 The Future We Want / Choreographic Communing

We ask theoretical questions and apply tools to our practice. We compose, experiment, learn, and commune as a friendship of bodies. Our questions will appeal to how we articulate future potentials by tending to how we think about dance and how we embody Now.


(un) Threading 

“A thread of attention” may be composed of action, undoing or presence.

We apply somatics, tools and images for touching into the body’s circuitry, systems and forces, sensing the body within a dynamic system while moving. By connecting forces between body, earth and space we move with a responsive structure. Various expressions of the body as a dynamic system changes perception and affects quality of attention.


Instant Composition

Composition comes out of our work in preparing a relational body, as we articulate how dance happens in a relational system. We explore how materiality between the body, space, time, sound, object and other unfolds in a time-based process where both composition and embodied ritual overlap. Dance is composed by collective forces, as relational thinking informs compositional choices. We invite new entries in genre-bending dance through this inquiry.

DOPAMINE – Para somatics and pleasure embodiment

We explore how imagination, body intelligence and spirit work together in communication with and across body-systems and body field to generate ease, pleasure, healing and articulate movement.
