Six online somatic sessions as a beginning to the creation of a new performance work by Zosia Jo of Joon Dance. This follows on from Zosia’s amazing 2019/20 solo research project, Fabulous Animal.
moving in space, noticing the ground beneath you, what is it you see/feel/need?
my tail unfurling is lavish, carnivalesque, insisting that I shimmy through space – shake it!
my wings out-stretched, my horns of bark and bone …shapeshifting
how do they allow you to move, to hold yourself? how do they interact?
my wings expand, take up space
a cat rides between my shoulder blades… i am lifted
go where the breath takes you
explore your habitat, resolve your animal dance
concrete breaks apart as my feet touch down
i dig through rubble searching for narratives in the layers
stories coalesce out of dust…i gather them in
breathe and remember…remember and breathe
