Jennie Howell and I performed a version of the improvised piece I am researching, Figure (s), for an invited audience.
Some of the useful thoughts that arose in the discussion afterwards included:
– The delicate and precarious movement between my body and the plinth – am I going to take the weight/is it going to take me – gives rise to lots of metaphors and connotations.
– The choice of sound-making materials are reminiscent of the art of foley and create a visible relationship between the body/the movement and the sound.
– What can we do to warm up, to prepare for this act of improvising together? For something which has elements which remain, but which is always new?
