I cover materials I have researched about “why” we learn to walk and “why” we forget to continue learning to walk. In my world of theatre, music and dance, the body is the glue that brings all time arts together reminding us that the joy of moving is based in how we continue to be curious about the simple actions we do day to day.
“Dance is fancy walking”
We will begin the work using simple movement tasks that wake up our physical/mental awareness.
“Tell the brain to tell the mind to shut up ……… body obey me”
The aim is to re kindle a curiosity for discovering movement, question what motivates you to move and “why” you choose to go one direction or another in any given creative situation.
I will increase the work studying how eyes, ears and spacial orientation are a basic part of our physicality.
” Is the wall coming towards us or are we are going towards the wall?”
The agility we have to orientate ourselves in space it is a gift. As we move through space, the chemical rush we receive to the brain enhances our perception of “Body Body Body”.
