WORK > Methods for Writing: the body in motion

Methods for Writing explores how landform and environmental constraints influence the way people feel in public space. The performance work in this series explores movement as a method for generating space in the urban environment. This series of experimental pieces mediates relationships between boundaries and a verbal score.

For each performance piece, the performers exchanged verbal cues to direct movement in a specific environment (in this case, the paper). The performances made visible a relationship between the score and the bounds of the space. Through this process of exchange, the 'creation' of space is released from the control of a single actor. By responding to the subtle gestures and actions of each performer, together the performers create the material conditions of the environment.
