Jess Curtis: Sensing, Dancing
How do our senses inform, support, interrupt and enable the (inter) actions we call dancing?
In this workshop we will work from the most basic building blocks of experience, unpacking sensation, perception, impulse, emotion, attention, reflex, and reaction in order to create more space between them in which to dance in ways that are engaging and satisfying. Layering multiple sensory-motor experiences, we will surf through twisting topologies of flesh and blood to enact perceptual acrobatics that bring us into new dimensions. Creating scores and structures (or not).
We will ask “Is freedom the state of having choices, or a state beyond choosing?” We will look at both possibilities, smash them together to see what kind of messy realities we can construct for ourselves. We will work in sweaty modes of physical engagement where weight, breath, momentum, desire and adrenalin intervene in conceptual structures to create pleasure, satisfaction and a rich range of dancing experiences.
