Research Lab 2018 | Weds 4 Jul, 10am - 12noon This Research Lab will reflect my insatiable curiosity for ‘what is means to be human’ and how (notions of) relationships factor into all of this – the relationship we have to ourselves; each other and to our environment.
Specifically we’ll explore the idea of being ‘held’ in someone else’s attention and how it can be embodied?
What form does this sense of holding take between dancers? Is it one way? Is it reciprocal?
How do you find yourself being ‘held’ in someone's attention; and what opportunities (in terms of the encounter/interaction/relationship) does it create?
Being held in someone's attention, however fleetingly, is the starting point...How can it progress? What role do the eyes have in all of this?
How can we play with how the interaction unfolds?
Gaining an embodied understanding of the other;
As conversations between people and specific parts of the body;
Attention to detail; nuances; listening.
