Moveable Cinema/ Dynamic Expansion class description

 

 PLEASE NOTE: I do not support the useage of one-time-usage of plastic water drinking bottles. Please find wonderful alternative ways to bring drinking water to my classes, workshops or performances and please drink plenty with pleasure.

FIELDING

 
Fielding is shaped by performing the practice of Moveable Cinema; a heightened visually sensed movement practice with multiple relationships that are interactive with light, sound, space and people. Layers of light, direction and texture are both highlighting the performance of the practice, as well as subtly informing the vibrancy of the movement.

Scores drawn by Marla Hlady are performed and shape the choreography;
highlighting her series “Graphic Scores (2010)” and “Sound Events (2010)” (Ink and graphite on paper). These multilayered drawings are integrated spatially, viscerally and temporally. 
Duration approximately 1 Hour.
 
 
Feeling this field of vision.
This vision of a field, feeling.
Moving through this feeling,
this vision, this field.
Fielding it, together.
