scale and seeing


Images from august practice sessions in Holyoke, Ma. 

Seeing our movements within such an open setting was in itself a practice of concentration. Not due to content but due to the eyes willingness to follow anything in its path, or unwillingness to want to fix on a human within an inhuman scale of place. Perhaps this notion of scale is something to consider for further investigation. What is human scale? What is inhuman scale? How is scale in and of itself playing itself out within these sessions or within any dance creations/presentations. Can scale be danced? How do we direct the outside eye into varying degrees of scale within the body – another landscape. 

To both dance and watch dance with an outdoor environment can feel like pushups for the eye, but when the muscles begin to respond, there is an ever wider view to appreciate. 

I appreciate my partners dancing in this particular endeavor.
