Pulsation is the basic, the basis and the beginning. We pulsate on many levels. Expansion and contraction creates life at a cellular level, maintains life through breathe and facilitates movement into the world through muscular action and rhythmic vibration. Can we also pulsate our attention so that we can be both with ourselves and with others- relating to space, contact, communication or performance without losing inward connection?
Through imagery, imagination and contact with others, we aim to find fluidity and possibility in our dancing whilst paying attention to our own needs and boundaries. There are invitations to be slow and soft as well as invitations to embrace effort and dynamism. We will work to embed spiral patterns that facilitate smooth flight with our constant partner- the floor – as well as with other movers and through space.
