thanks to all for a rich weekend of embedding, inter-creativity, fruitful kicking against boundaries, going deep into the body, fragments of discovery that fit somehow, attending, gathering .. gathering .. moving away from rigorous thought into the more unknown
and especially thank you to Andy and Eeva for their tending of this beautiful venue, www.penpynfarch.co.uk
here are some word fragments from me in response to the workshop and documentation:
invitation: experience the place as rain would, as a plant would, as a pigeon might.
blindfold body: “she took away our sight and we saw more”.
the colour of touch.
attend to the environement
(fragments of) heart.
“she took away our speed and we moved together…
…but the valley had a magic quality: they had become very small”.
body of water.
sacrifice, transubstantiation, (upright gesture – no word).
magical, holding-up, (upright gesture – no word).
root, dripping-green, huntress.
