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.
