Rhythm and listening are fundamental notions of our work. As core elements of structure and relation, they will be excercised in order to ‘awaken’ a certain kind of quality, presence and perception. The session will deal with the comprehension on how these ingredients can define one’s own identity inside a group, and with ways to reassess the individual responsibility in relation to the collective.

Which means do we employ in order to create in common, knowing that each one of us holds the skills to reach the same objective?

How do we measure the value of an act and the repositioning in space, in their relation to the group?

Which part of us do we need to strenghten in order for the creative process to maintain the objective consideration of ‘working’ together, in common?

To delve into the specific traits of these issues we may need to take a closer look into one or more elements from performances such as MayB, Umwelt and Bit.
