Body as Archive
”Breath and Gravity. In an apparent stillness I observe the micro shifts of movement. In between this oscillation I detect a key for change. Reading my structural relationship with the surroundings through breath, I meet a sense of source. In this gap: an original molecular force that keeps me alive, an essential thread line, reveals the unifying principle that defined the core of my identity as I entered this reality, my original narrative, which has a rhythm and a shape. The core of this essential song, made by the encounter of two different rhythms, is stored in the core of my vertebrae..”
During this residential workshop in the beautiful context of the natural coast of Bahia, we will be exploring the permeable limits of our sense of self, exploring the relationship between stillness and the movement through our dancing body engaged in a process of rediscovering and reorienting its archive of memories through a somatic practice, accessing a transformational place of understanding part of a wider system of coordination. Through a series of contemplative practices to awaken and attune to the senses, focusing on the relationship between breathing, the gravity field and our perception of the present moment, we will explore movement to release the “self that moves,” in an encounter with a symbolic self and its permeability in space time, using the technique of Contact Improvisation as a way to explore the ‘archives’ of our body mind as a transformational place.
