Who knew that breath had so much creative potential?
It’s perfectly staged, with flawless execution and timing.
In August 2015 I participated in a research week with US choreographer Deborah Hay in Findhorn towards developing her new work Figure a Sea. My journey was supported by Lisa Ullmann Travelling Scholarship Fund. My report on this experience is published on LUTSF website. http://lutsf.org.uk/awardwinners/
You sit in front of a screen. You read some news. You think. You stop thinking. You eat your pop-corn. “It’s kind of alright” you think but you don’t know if this thought is addressed to the news or the pop-corn. You relax back staring at the ceiling. You are thinking “what’s next?” You don’t know the answer. You don’t know what step to take next. You just stare at the ceiling sitting comfortably on your red sofa. You don’t really know for how long you’ve been there. You feel thirsty for quite a while now but you are bored to get up and go to drink some water. “I’ll wait until I can’t stand it any longer” you think “and then I’ll get up”. Is this the reason why you are sat there for so long? Are you just waiting for this non-action mode to become unbearable before you get up and do something? Maybe. And is this unbearable moment the one that defines your actual urgency? Maybe. Perhaps when all the motivation has gone out of the window, it is the urgency that gives you the reason to become active again.
