Text from the Initial R & D Sessions:
Welcome to Lick my Book. The vagus nerve. The network. A pathway of connections. Knowledge as a total body experience. How to learn, how to remember, how to remain awake and indivinate? I open my voice and movement research to the audience for feedback and support. My research & development sessions will be investigating symbolic in ac- tion, ritual in performance, the internal & intimate as well as the external & displayed journeys, vocal & gestural extended techniques and self-in- duced emotional & chemical states. Chaos & hypocrisy may appear. Questions of interest are : What is a political body? How can I modify or create mood? How can I be affective? How can the “journey” of performance be reciprocal? I sing, I move, I play for many years now. My practice has led me from Bal- let, Shakespeare and Balkan song to Holotropic Breathwork and Visual Art practices.
First Session: Photo diary
Second Session: New questions…. Colonisation? Eros? God?
Third Session: Keep it small, a small music, an intimate sounding a dark sharing
Session 4, repeat and transform, stay in the process before moving on. Old questions: Colonialisation/ objectify your audience? What comes from objectifying the self? A question of morals, principles, and drama. Preachers and Psychopaths
Further development as part of SMASH teachers showing: “the world is sound – evening of performances and talks on body and voice” Tuesday, December 2 at 8:00pm in UTC+01. Hungriger Geist, Pannierstraße 40, Neukölln, Berlin
Understanding the way I work: A collage of overlapping concepts, layers of plastics, cross wiring information. A theatre dance of effect. Moral subtext, metatheatrical undertakings. Embody questions without answers. In this piece violence is a possibility is it? A performance music collage concert comedy
