Performers focus on the intention to take and object and especially on the moment before the hand reaches it. Thus, they wants to give some visibility to a moment that is rarely considered. They play with several strategies to deconstruct this moment, for example by touching what they see as fast as they see it. They use calls like " inhibit", "close" to add a disturbing layer over already disturbed actions.
This score in progress is part of " Visions, a research on poetic dance documentation" . Visions both integrates and questions the traditional format of dance documentation. In reference to cellular memory and DNA that encode and transmit genetic instructions, Visions starts from the hypothesis that living is documentation practice and that a document can be alive. The project generates objects and video but also scores as documents. Visions integrates some of Lisa Nelson Tuning Scores tools: It uses sensorial exploration to generate movement and multiple points of views to document a shared event. Visions is interested in presenting the interdependency between the visual and the tactile world. The object of the documentation is « eyes-hand coordination » which is the coordination between the vision and the hand necessary to execute the simplest tasks, like drinking a glass of water, writing, or putting on a coat.
