Every Body, a dance performance in experiential anatomy: We all possess a body but for most people it is not so often that one thinks about the contents, structure, function, or anatomy of this body (not at least, until something goes wrong or something stops functioning properly...we are not going to go there.) In this performance we bring attention to the body each of us is inhabiting, and invite audience members to tune in to the experience of their body through focus, touch and movement. In this way we bring attention not only to the outer performance space that we the performers are inhabiting, but the vast inner space of each and every individual. Every Body is a performance of anatomy and anatomical function (i.e Breath, circulation, fascia.) It is a performance of connecting anatomies expressed through dance, sound and words. Andrew and Liz connect with one another and directly with the audience.
As performers we ask the question if it is possible to change the viewing framework from something happening outside of the individual body to something taking place inside of the body. Can we then tie the experienced inner-space to the events experienced in the outer-space? Every outer experience is experienced on some level within the individual inner space. We will simply be drawing attention to the inner-outer connection and will strengthen this tie.
