Inspired by the concept of "walk + talk" by Philipp Gehmacher, but with the invitation to flip the idea and appropriate it for my own understanding and desire to embody the thinking, the solo-improv-work meta or talk and move is part of the ongoing series Matter.
I have the sensual perception of my body surrounded in liquid, unstable, juicy, lively environment. Like diving into a huge pond of melted vanilla icecream. I am digging into something that is the surrounding of my physical entity, that is so not an entity or unit. I am keen to establish an understanding of that unknown space. The unknown space that is between the body and mind, past and future, human and more-than-human world, sound and silence. Does this specific relation offers an alternative, unique, probably femininist archive, a body of knowledge?
