Rustlin’ Vessels is a movement lab. Lucy guides physical explorations contaminated by the language of somatics, science, and poetry. Participants will work alone, in pairs and as a micro-community through improvisations of various forms, including freestyle composition, the use of analogy, witnessing, sign posts, systems, and touch. Current proposals constellate around possibilities : the porousness of time and place; a difference between feeling and sensation; music as a map. We will practice tensile power and muscular resistance. Bumping through big ideas, paying attention to detail, to each other, and to how we are positioned − Let it be resolved that dancing is a way of thinking in the world.
