The theme is Exodoi:

Literally, Exodos means the movement of a large number of people, a departure, a journey moved by reasons, to escape a hostile environment. In Greek tragedy, Exodus, is the final scene; particularly, in Euripides, it involves the arrival of a Deus Ex Machina, a godly intervention towards an unstable situation. In the workhop context, exodos becomes plural- exodoi – and is understood metaphorically as:

Exodoi is the movement of our internal stories, landscapes, bodies. Exodoi calls for a Deux Ex Machina that allows us to understand, perceive and see, our own cartography. We can move to reach a welcoming land, we accept the intervention of a Deus Ex Machina through the creation of new wings. The wings are created as we allow the dialogic existence of the relation with nature with in us: stones (external) and bones (internal), water and blood, soil and flesh.

Exodoi – Cartographic Score Gesture Verse Fragrance wants to provide a space for micromovement and inner unveiling of our own internal bodies. Internal bodies are weaved through the light architecture of our bones, through myofascial connectors, organs, muscles as much as our epigenetic signs – traces; they also compose the unique and individual cartography made of gestures, verses and fragrances.

Through the dialogic process of all relations, we unfold our cartography into the real. Into this world.

Cartographic score is understood as a processual experiential choreography that each individual goes through to enter the dual process of exploration and creation.

Dance travels from Body to Body: digital humanities, theatre, dance and embodied transmission

Taking inspiration from this great article entitled “Mapping Movement on the Move: Dance Touring and Digital
Methods
” by Harmony Bench, Kate Elswit (published in Theatre Journal, Volume 68, Number 4, December 2016, pp. 575-596 (Article, there are a lot on interesting lines of inquiry and directions pointed at that are oxygen for thinking and, I found, especially reflecting.

And in this site specific world we are living through. Movement is a hot topic. There will always be an overspill of information, of soma and its articulation as soma-techne from a body to a body. We transfer informations, imaginaries, sensation, from body to body. In situ and virtually.
Is it so? Do we transfer meaning and sensation as we move from screen to screen?

How has your experience been since 2020, or prior. How does a digitalised humanity respond to somatic sensation nurturing in a virtual state? Or at least, including a virtual phase in the process of transferring and creating together?
