We Know That Everybody Dances

a workshop with Fitzgerald and Stapleton

Question: What if every cell in my body has the potential to notice the uniqueness and originality of all that there is, here and now, whilst inviting being seen in this practice?

The workshop with Fitzgerald and Stapleton was for me a unique experience, a new experience.

Exploring the imaginary, the perceptual and the inbetween happening through the body physically in the space, we used our bodies as a site for experimentation. Presented with a professional written score from their repertoire of work, we were immersed into their practice as artists. A practice full of freedom breath and expression.

What if?

What if every cell of my body can see what my eyes can see?

We re-learnt and re-imagined everyday actions and movements. Breaking social conventions and the predetermined this workshop for me, has opened up my perceptions of how we can make work and what is possible from only words on a page. How we can deliberately construct our perception.

Imagine this:

The performer is onstage her stance is reminiscent of a thread of smoke seen from afar. I am reminded that I am not limited by my personal experience of seeing smoke from afar. I go to my whole body at once to learn the dance of a thread of smoke seen from afar.

Throughout the Fitzgerald and Stapleton workshop I was reminded that I am not limited. I am not limited by my experiences or by my practices only by myself.
