BodyMine investigates the tension between the experience of ‘body as liability’ and ‘body as abundance’. The body is a fundamental, material constraint that each of us is born with. The current, dominant socio-cultural construction of the body encourages us to experience our bodies as a liability, as something that gets in the way of life. And as such colors our experience of our body.
When the body is acknowledged as the fundamental entity/mode through which we engage with the world, there is a sense of abundance. Dance performance often contributes to the dominant narrative of the body by elevating and showcasing a certain kind of relationship to the body: one of control towards display.
BodyMine explores the abundance of possibility that the body holds – for art and for life.
