Thinking with the body
Yesterday morning I was lucky enough to be allowed to shoot a model at the Thinking With The Body exhibition for my book. The exhibition, which has been staged during the run-up to the first performances of Wayne McGregor | Random Dance, ‘Atomos’ at Sadler’s Wells, offers insights into this interdisciplinary research process and the impact it has in the rehearsal studio.
I’ve been there twice already and will be back, having followed what I believe to be the exhibition’s agenda I’m now hoping to use it to generate ideas that I can use in the future.
If you’re in London and free I recommend it. It runs until October 27th.
This theme of thinking with (and for) the body is personally apposite at the moment. Last week’s reconstructive surgery means I’m having to be particularly conscious of my own movements, since overuse (which I think means too much weight bearing stuff) of the left chest muscles might reduce the operation’s intended benefits.
