Choreographies on paper, a dancing imagination.
In Systems of Movement, the artist and dancer Lisa Homburger invites us to explore the potential movement holds as a force of the imagination. Imagining your body as a dancing body, executing (im)possible movements.
Over 16 meters we follow the graphic notations of choreographies which encourage us to play, to take a risk or to dream in multiple ways.
When experiencing movement on paper the fixed parameter of a body moving in space is removed and we are asked to take a different approach.
Scoring movement is an attempt to reduce the status of the One, the choreographer, and to share agency with you, the reader. A multiplicity. An endless exchange between the scores and the imagination.
This scroll is an appeal to the limitlessness of the imagination where there is no “wrong”.
The act of thinking as the act of doing. Or to say it in the words of Yvonne Rainer: “The mind is a muscle”.
