Work in progress… Surging Verticality
Coming together for the third time, now at Performance Space, we have begun to develop small experiments around the conversation between somatic bodywork and the crafting of body-centred technologically mediated or augmented audience experiences. Seeking moments of transformation of the ordinary. It’s not as easy as you might expect. The idea that I had originally conceived was slowly dissected and reformulated as we began to test materials and insert the body. The body as always is the ultimate test. My doctoral thesis had this tenet at its core. Yet I was still surprised at how radically the body (the experience of individual bodies) can affect conceptual understandings or imaginings.
