Hand Dance

I wonder how I reside in my body, how I am in conversation with my hand for instance. How I might listen and wait for my hand to move itself. What happens when I pause long enough to listen or experience my hand moving? What am I perceiving there and what is possible inside this fluid exchange between me and my hand? I am trying to follow arrivals and departures of the movements moving.

I am trying to follow arrivals and departures of the movements moving.

...and I am drawn to this experience this way of talking with movement. As if I am not alone when I am in motion since the motion and all of its players- my body and it’s parts - are either in dialogue or unable to be in dialogue with me. To distill the movement of the hand opening or closing reveals to me the immense articulation a body can enact. The detail of following an allowance of the actual following does something to my corporeality- it provides a map to experiencing myself experiencing. This something provides a space or perhaps a gap between myself and myself. It dilates the multiple interstices and provides a language that is both foreign and known at the same time. Giving agency to the interstices of my hand for instance to be ...a more than...a possibility for understanding how I might want to bring a language to this movement, gesture, and expressivity inside dancing and dancing’s forms or modalities.
