What is a somatic approach to video? How might video be an integrated part of an embodied practice? These are my preliminary questions as I enter this collaborative research.
For my residency at Siobhan Davies Studios I will be developing strategies to translate and apply my choreographic methodologies into video.
Coming from visual art my experience with editing video significantly influenced my choreographic enquiry into fragmentation and disjunction. Now I aim to explore, through open-ended experiments, how to turn the results of that enquiry back into the medium that influenced it.
The content of my performances emerges from somatic enquiry, exploring the ways our internal physical space organises external space and influences our inter-relational dynamics. Working collaboratively with performers, videographers, a musician and opening the process up to the public, the residency will take the shape of an expanded video shoot in which we will play at manifesting and articulating these spatial dynamics through emergent movement and language, whilst exploring how a video camera may become an extension of somatic experience.
