Layering of movements and attentive sensuality. Applying elements of continuum, contact improvisation, basic neurological patterns. Movement inquiries that effect on fluidity. Spirals and waves, moving through breath and sound, subtle pulsations, shifting towards a multiple fluency and a fullness of senses. Rhythms contained in the upper thoracic region, abdominal cavity compression, vibrations of bone cells within the sack of bones, awareness of displacements, producing visceral energy. Emphasizing soft parts, flesh and organs, electric essence of sensation. Touch and body contact as a proposal for hybrid togetherness. Pouring weight and receiving weight through essential structures. Addressing physicality and creative forces with imaginative materials. Offering phrases and sentences of actions that form a base for relationships and orientation in space.
