PhD Thesis: The Ecological Body ~ extracts
In Half-Open Lips, I worked with ‘position’ (physical, emotional, intellectual and symbolic positions expressed through movement) and then with ‘transition’. The transition sequences were initiated first from the eyes and seeing, then from the ears and hearing and finally from the feet and sensations, bringing them together in my final dance. Eleanor followed the same score in her violin playing.
In Half-Open Lips, I was a young girl; a model; an old woman; I echoed the posture of the sculpted woman; I deliberately moved with my shadow and moved my fingers in relation to the image of my own hands magnified and projected on the video, at the close of the piece.
