Presence comes from sensations of the body and the perceptions of the mind those sensations provoke. This allows us to connect to space being changed by it. This perspective is from the inside out, sensing the body from the inside out- an internal embodiment of the world around us. Seeing the world- and yourself- through your own eyes and senses.
Telepresence and external embodiment: experiencing the body form the perspective of space, external perspective, allows space to connect to us by being changed by us. Seeing yourself from the eyes, senses and perspective of space
Movement is change; by moving we are changing. Even in a state of rest, our bodies move with pulse and breath; these movements are the foundation of life. Change is innate to our humanity and to our lived existence. Defiance is embracing oneself as a changing being- by changing oneself. Change, without judging change as progressive or regressive; it is merely a process and a product that leads to a difference based on what once was the same. Move and be moved.
Points of connection within the body are the source of initiation and engagement for movement. Connectivity allows for space to be made as a foundation for and initiation of movement. Space allows for engagement. Connection is liberating. Connection between bodies exists through the catalyst of rhythm. Our breaths and pulses are consistent and constant; the stability of rhythm is innate to our humanity and existence. We can control our bodies on a rhythmic level to connect to other bodies, connect to music, and connect to the momentum of life in space.
It is generally known that physical sensation it inspires thought. However, this cycle is reversed through dance; one must intentionally seek the physical sensation that comes from movement. Through this, presence is both created and maintained. One can only feel completely present by being aware that there is sensation to be sought- and thus that one can experience presence through thinking about the physical sensation that can come from moving through space.
