A lecture demonstration about the interrelatedness of perception, imagination and poetic imagery and their role in dancing and composing.
Performative elements and lecture alternate with moments when the audience is invited to participate in body-work, moving and creative writing. Through engaging in active listening, seeing, touching and moving they experience different facets of the phenomenon of ‘imagination’ and ‘imagery’ for themselves.
The Unfolding Image presents observations, questions and propositions rather than delivering a linear series of facts and information.
