RECOVERIST THEATRE PROJECT - SESSION 3: 5 RHYTHMS & WRITING THE BODY

03/03/24

Writing the Body was created for our third session and combined working with 5 rhythms and creative writing to explore aspects of the 'wave' and how they related to participants journeys - focusing on possibilities.

Participants danced a 'wave' through the 5 rhythms of 'Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness'. They then created free writing around working with the body in the 5 rhythms. They ended the session by creating individual 'Haikus' based on a particular theme or words that they focused on during the writing between moving - looking at what they wanted to walk towards after the session.

 

HAIKUS

ex-per-i-menting

with the energy of flow

all together now

riotous, joyous

infectious creation of 

shapes & emotion

 

 

 

The Giraffe was tall and

I was small

Thats the long and the short of it

 

A leaf flew by

I saw with a sigh

That winter was upon us.

 

The Withering Guns

Sound loud and closer than before

Soon it will be time
