Description

Andrea Maciel
BE – 2 – IN: Body connectivity


The act of doing an action together involves sensorial cooperation; negotiation of time/space; coordination of forces engaged in a dynamic of mutual trust. It has many possibilities within it as choice, chance, resistance and surrender. Participants will play with time, space and the energy existing between bodies in the process of doing an action together. It is about looking carefully to the immanent act of being with others and contemplate the infinite sensorial threads existing in the act of transforming an idea into concrete motion. As artist Ligia Clark formulated in her conception of ‘walking’, the work in itself becomes the actual act of making it and by that it makes you and the work a total connection. The sessions will explore the dilatation of usual sensorial abilities behind spontaneous everyday life gestures and from there initiates a series of creative provocations such as: “What are the temporalities contained in the act of doing an action? How are the shapes of different time vibration between bodies? Vibration of time can become matter?”. Participants over 50 will work on elements such as body connectivity, sensorial led movement, conscious cooperation, movement awareness and imagination as catalysts for changing motion and behaviour.
