“A writer is not so much someone who has something to say as he is someone who has found a process that will bring about new things he would not have thought of if he had not started to say them.”
― William Stafford
The laboratories will focus on tuning the creative space between us. Our intention is to develop spatial intelligence where group communication and investigation mostly happens wordlessly; where everyone continually tunes themselves to art that is already in the place of our meeting. Proposing ideas, improvisational structures and scores that cultivate availability for what is happening in the space; to sense and reveal the poetry contained within it. The contemplative approach provides an environment in which it is possible for perception to shift beyond known, to a place where reality is alive, existing as a continuous movement; transforming, playing with definitions, exchanging and merging objects with subjects.
The laboratories containing the opportunity for everyone to create their own dance performance/ short film pieces in collaboration with others. There will be a possibility to present it in the space to a public audience.
