QUESTIONS

Choose a theme / score to improvise on. After you have done, draw a map of your journey. Name all the patterns of your exploration. 

Like a detective following clues of the patterns, ask yourself: what is the deeper question of this improvisation? Where do patterns lead me? What are the patterns that restrict me, limit me, diminish my choices? Which pattern opens up a space of possibilities? How can I get there? For example, how can I move to a bigger space? How can I release the tension in my body that holds me back from flowing with the world? How can I step into the unknown without fear and expectations?

Into an empty space ask your question.

See which image from your improvisation comes up as a portal to lead you deeper into the work. Allow the previous story to reconfigure itself. Moving between images that arise from you, allow the time and space to warp, abandon linearity. 

What understandings arise from this embodied exploration?

Write them down, draw them, map them out. Give a name to your journey.
