PATTERNS ACROSS IMAGES

Having drawn the map, notice what attracts your attention.

Choose 3 images that call you.

Revisit the images.

There is something you know about them, and there is something that remains unknown. Use what you know as a starting point, a point of rest and return. Implement curiosity to discover what you do not know yet.

What pleasures does revisiting bring? What challenges it poses?

When finished, return to your map and write down – in a form of hyperlinks – what new information you have gotten the images. 

Name the images.

Transitions.

Choose three images from your map.

Move between them and pay attention to the transitions.

Hold the space in between the images.

Do you choose to move to the next one?

Do you know where you will move to, and you delay the manifestation of your choice?

Do you find yourself in the next image?

What is the “portal” to change? A physical position, a texture, a rhythm, a space, a feeling?

How do you leave the previous image? Do you drop it, abandon it, gently slide away, slip away, put aside, fade away.

Do you stay with something and let it transform?

Do you carry it to a new space? New time? Build a new relationship to it? 

Do you amplify it? Saturate the whole body?

Does the next image surprise you with appearing?

Do you choose or does it choose you?

Repeat a transition and do it in a different way. Yet a different way. And another way to change.

Choose one image and move with it.

Draw it.

Speak about it in the present tense to your partner.

Partner notices what words repeat in the description.

Verbs create movement.

Doer pick up one of the words and moves with it, developing a single pattern.

Where does it take you?

Move with an image.

Notice what repeats: rhythm, direction, texture, parts of the body, spacing.

Stay with something to weave a pattern around an image.

Where does it want to take you.

Does it expand you or constrict you?

If it constricts you, ask yourself, what is its opposite?

Work with a simple pattern, e.g. raising and sinking, going down and standing up.

Observe the rhythm / pace.

Which body part leads (space in the body).

Physical space in the room (where does it happen?).

Observe and play with texture.

Observe the relationship: how do I feel about it?

Prologue the in between plane – horizontal.

Integrate it all and play with them, see what arises.

 

Draw a map.

Walk the map and describe it to your partner, in the present tense.

Choose three places that attract your attention.

Reenter them.

Partner work.

One partner moves, the other gives commands: Stay with that, Leave that, Stay with that and saturate the whole body, Stay with that and play with time, Stay with that and play with space, Stay with that and play with texture.

Use three at a time.

Name three things when doing and three when observing that bring pleasure.

Discuss what do you stay with, what do you leave.

Altogether

Before you begin moving, pause.

When you notice you lose attention, pause.

When you do not know what to do, pause.

In the pause, notice your body.

Notice how you feel now.

Where are you coming from.

See the where are you going to opening to you.

When an impulse arises from the body, start moving again.

When you finish, pause and reverse everything what you have done until now.
