Inspired by my own experience as a performer in the interactive video installation Longing and Forgetting, I explore how to transmit kinesthetic and bodily knowledge of the performer. In the first stages of this project I interviewed other performers from Longing and Forgetting and analyzed how their previous movement training informed how they articulated their experience of movement. In future work we also explore how the performers’ accounts of movement are perceived by others.
In a related project we explore how to archive the performer’s perspective from Judith Garay’s work, The Fine Line ~ twisted angels.
