tricoter et danser/ woven dance

November, 2021. Clermont-Ferrand, France.

A movement exploration session inspired by handcraft action to experience ways of dancing together. All the participants, as threads, intertwined by dancing and becoming together. They created knots between them, woven and unwoven a personal and collective dance. As anthropologist Tim Ingold points out, knots have memory and the heart is a knot (2015:25). This is workshop explores the ways the action of knitting involves sense and feelings and  it is no longer an individual experience.

The movement workshop was part of the ¨Choreomundus weekend¨ organised by students of Choreomundus – International master’s in dance Knowledge, Practice, and Heritage; and University Clemont Auvergne.
