Day One, Berlin residency: Jack
For the first week of my Choreographic Futures (Dance Base, Dance House, City Moves Dance agency and the Work Room) supported period of research in Berlin I will be joined by Jeremy Wade ( http://www.jeremywade.de)as mentor whilst in Berlin.
Today to start off with I danced an improvisation with a simple spacial score and in our first session the following things came up (amongst others) whilst being observed by Jeremy.
Where does something begin and where does it end
Following through with movements
Voguing (although I already know a bit about voguing and the film ‘Paris is Burning’, I hadn’t realised how much of a similarity there is in the movement language that I am working with. Jeremy pointed out that there is a similarity there)
Timing (surprise yourself)
Gestures are often ending towards the body
Capacity to send everything out to the audience with the face and facial expression
Capacity to play with the audience’s expectation with the use of gaze
