Body As A Vessel

During these workshops sessions we looked at -“The body as a ‘vessel’ physically and neurologically, holding experience and trauma whilst storing information, impulses and patterns. And the question, “does human expression need to be more ‘psycho’, more ‘imagined’, ‘extreme’ or shamanic even?”

How do we take something that was intended to be a deep, intimate delving, a physical meeting of multiple bodies in one space, and convert it into digital platforms, Zooms, Messenger chats, File sharing, performing to camera, wailing and bashing objects into sound files and being held to account by a stop clock and a clanging sound you can’t see but can hear?
