Work in progress sharing at the University of Brighton

Jennie Howell and I performed a version of the improvised piece I am researching, Figure (s), for an invited audience.

Feedback Forum

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?
