What am I holding on to?
within sensation is a contemporary dance piece that explores tension held in a body, how it accumulates, and how the body copes with it. It shares a meditative journey through the interpreter’s body, watching her process different sensations and emotions, as she steadily moves through space and time.
within sensation seeks to bring you into the world of the performer, as she navigates her own experience, leaving you asking yourself, What am I holding on to? and, In what ways is it impacting me? This work is about meeting ourselves with care and with an open mind – a personal exploration of what it feels like to exist in a human body, at this moment in time.
* There is a 15-minute post-show Q+A on August 3rd, facilitated by Amanda Acorn.
