Not Knowing

A capital K on the knowing…

We’ve been working with uncertainty, allowing, not knowing, not doing and using these ideas as part of our process. From the DailyTao :

Practice not-doing,
and everything will fall into place.

In our performance work we spend a lot of time exercising various performative ‘muscles’ - some of these are performance states (such as body state, time/space, emotion, narrative) and some are physiological training (primarily our practise in Contact Improvisation but also other associated body forms and training). When making improvised performance we develop both material (content) and structure (form) in the moment and over the duration of the work. At times, by engaging in not knowing, we allow possibilities and potential within the performance to emerge and evolve.

Why?

Well, because it seems to allow things to fall into place.
