I often trip on an invisible barrier between action and perception. Why? Deborah Hay has said “consciousness is visible”. Yes. I think of space as the ground of all awareness. Space binds us as performers to each other and the audience. In this class we explore the nature of space as fluid and tangible. And as a sense unto itself. We treat presence as material. We will spend a great deal of time doing simple tasks, like placing objects. We will experience ourselves as architecture as well as bodies. Restraint, nuance and subtlety will be our friends. At times we will move intensely and observe the effect of action on perception and contemplation.
