I’ll share some non-theoretical, simple strategies for practicing getting closer to those parts of yourself that want to move and be moved.
Through sometimes languaging, and maybe writing, but mostly moving, we’ll notice to attend and then to let go, so we can be in ongoing relationship – to the body you inhabit, to the mind you’re in, to the imagination you possess, to the desires you skip over, to the emotions that come up, to time that is nonlinear, to the space inside and outside you, to what you see and also to the imagination of what could be.
I make dances and performance, as well as perform, teach, and sometimes write. I’m from NY and still based there, although my work, til “the pause,” has taken me all over the globe. The New Yorker has described my work as having both “the potential for philosophical revelation and theatrical disaster,” which I’ve always appreciated. I’m motivated by fundamental questions about how our basic and precarious desire for connection and communication aligns or often misaligns with how our thinking and feeling come to form and action. My companion works, inging and To Being, are based on a practice I call nonstopping that I started back in 2009. Research for my new project, Dark Matter, has been developed so far through several residencies, including MRX in Seoul, the Rauschenberg Residency, DNK in Sofia, Bulgaria, and through MANCC. I have worked with many choreographers over the years, including choreographer Deborah Hay since 2005. Beginning this Fall, I’ll be working with Cullberg/Stockholm as Rehearsal Director, as well as creating a new work commissioned by, and made for and with, Candoco Dance/London. www.jeaninedurning.com
