Y Space Movement Inquiry
The physical theatre and aerial practice of Y Space is deeply embedded in a ground based movement inquiry. This inquiry explores the way the body physically organises itself around a point of intention.
The Dialogue – moving across surface/structure (Climbing) and
We explore through:
The Monologue – internal movement awareness (Feldenkrais),
The Conversation – moving with moving bodies (Contact Improvisation).
From this process, an internal awareness or ‘sense-ability’ evolves in the dancer/climber as their body/mind becomes more available to their movement.
This ‘sense-ability’ creates an observable and shared movement aesthetic that is then taken into the vertical space.
In this way, the ground based training creates a common aesthetic from which we create work and orientates and prepares the body/mind for the real and perceived risks of working at height.
